Below is an excerpt from President Obama's Health care speech to congress. It is "SPOT ON".

"... that without the leavening hand of wise policy, markets can crash, monopolies can stifle competition, the vulnerable can be exploited..."

"... when any government measure, no matter how carefully crafted or beneficial, is subject to scorn;

when any efforts to help people in need are attacked as un-American;

when facts and reason are thrown overboard and only timidity passes for wisdom,

and we can no longer even engage in a civil conversation with each other over the things that truly matter --

at that point we don't merely lose our capacity to solve big challenges. We lose something essential about ourselves..."

A few of my favorite moments during Obama's Health Care address to Congress include the following:

"....I still believe -- I still believe that we can act when it's hard. I still believe we can replace acrimony with civility, and gridlock with progress. I still believe we can do great things, and that here and now we will meet history's test.

"..that what we face is above all a moral issue; that at stake are not just the details of policy, but fundamental principles of social justice and the character of our country....".
