Of course, "hands off our health care" has been the long-time slogan of the kinds of folks decrying supposed government takeovers -- to the point of its ultimate absurdity, the sort of people who would tell their Congressman to keep their government hands off of Medicare.

But now that the Democrats have passed a comprehensive health care bill, "our health care" now means the collective social responsibilities of mandated health insurance with accompanying regulation of the insurance industry. Can it fit on a bumper sticker?
