Why I'm still not convinced - quotes from John Kerry in the debate last night.

Good: "as a president, I have to represent all the people in the nation"
Iffy: "And that means ... making certain that you don't deny a poor person the right to be able to have whatever the Constitution affords them if they can't afford it otherwise."

Okay, the libertarian in me cries foul on this.

To paraphrase: Being president means making sure poor people aren't denied the right to have whatever they can't afford? ...............

Yeah, I know that's stretching it, but it's the way my brain runs about any government funding issue.
