interesting find. it doesn't relate to the issue right now really because that was really specific- a lot of jobs today require health insurance- the debate right now is more about universal health care.
it's actually kind of surprising because the Framers of the constitution were mostly federalists, whose philosophy was that people should be responsible for themselves, and that was the government's sentiment during that time.
idk i could be wrong, but i hope not. i just took my ap gov midterm today.
