With apologies to Saint Luke.
At that time, Augustus Caesar sent an order that all people in the countries under Roman rule must list their names in a register. This was the first registration; it was taken while Quirinius was governor of Syria. And all went to their own towns to be registered.That’s what I thought of as I read the Chicago Tribune’s editorial entitled, “An Rx for health coverage.”
The editorial explains,
...every Illinois resident would be required to have insurance...And, how, may I ask, will Caesar Blagojevich know if someone has not signed up for insurance?
Will there be an annual census decreed by Caesar Blagojevich?
After everyone is identified and catalogued by type of insurance, will future iterations of state control require insertion of microchips with our health history?
