While labor saw health reform as a step toward single-payer Medicare for All, the "limited government" Republicans saw it differently. The GOP took to court its arguments that health care legislation 1) is unconstitutional, 2) is too costly, and 3) infringes on our freedoms.

If limited government were in force there would be no child labor laws, no anti-monopoly laws, no labor rights, no civil rights, and no women's rights - and be no traffic laws.

But Franciso Rios, director of the UW Social Justice Research Center, said Wednesday he will put the matter behind him and move ahead.
Rios' invitation for William Ayers to speak drew hundreds of protests. The speech was scheduled to have taken place Monday, but Rios canceled it last week.

"I love politics," Spitzer told Elkind, according to excerpts of their March 31 interview. "The substance, the debate about the issues ..."

But he added, "I've never said I would never consider running for office again."
