Nonexistent Right Under Attack

April 23, 2008 - The Senate is likely to approve on Thursday a new bill that would prevent companies from discriminating on the basis of genetics. The greatest effect would be on the insurance industry, including corporate pensions and health plans.

"This will set back health care twenty years," said one Ford executive, speaking on condition of anonymity because I made him up. "The UAW has enough healthy children to supply the industry even without this bill."

Constitutional law scholar Barack Obama, asked about the pending legislation at a town hall Monday, smiled and nodded.
