John Adams on Obamacare
"Each individual of the society has a right to be protected by it in the
enjoyment of his life, liberty, and property, according to standing laws. He is
obliged, consequently, to contribute his share to the expense of this
protection; and to give his personal service, or an equivalent, when necessary.
But no part of the property of any individual can, with justice, be taken from
him, or applied to public uses, without his own consent, or that of the
representative body of the people. In fine, the people of this commonwealth are
not controllable by any other laws than those to which their constitutional
representative body have given their consent."
