Racial preferences and health care reform
Author: Steven Gieseler
This National Review Online post by the indispensable Roger Clegg is a nice gateway to several examinations of the racial preferences hidden in the House's just-passed health care reform bill.
As Clegg notes, a majority of the members of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights objected to similar provisions in an earlier version of the bill, quite obviously to no avail.
UPDATE: Clegg opines, again on NRO, that the just-released Senate version has similar race preference provisions.
