Free from fear of illness and death? That's a mighty tall promise from a man who couldn't keep a governor under indictment for corruption from appointing his own choice for U.S. Senator to replace an outgoing senator and getting that Senator seated in spite of Reid's pledge it would never happen.
And another thing -- if the Senate has had the power to free us from "fear of illness and death," shame on it for having never done so before. Even if the principles of biology, physics and chemistry mandate that people will get sick and/or die no matter what some demagogic politician says, they shouldn't have to walk around scared of it.
