Founding Fathers Talk Health Care

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Our founding fathers would have a lot to say about President Obama’s health care plan.

So says Corey Deitz, author of Vilified! (Deitz), who’s been imagining a fictional conversation about health care between Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Samuel Adams, and John Hancock.

The convo plays out on his site,, and features the founding fathers arguing after a waiter coughs on them at a restaurant.

They ponder whether health care is the responsibility of an individual or of society as a whole.

Though Deitz tries to show different sides of the issue, in the end, the founding fathers decide that Americans should be able to decide for themselves what their contribution to the health care system will be.

Deitz believes it’s unfair for President Obama’s plan to rely so heavily on rich people for contributions, since penalizing folks for being successful is “not how this country was founded.”
