Christianity Today has a great interview with Mike Huckabee that spans a wide range of topics from health care, Sarah Palin, foreign policy, Christmas and much more.  I voted for Huckabee in the primary and wish I could have voted for him as president.  He gave a great answer in the interview about health care reform which you can read below.

Would you vote for the health-care bill if the Stupak amendment [that bans funding for abortion] was retained in the final version?

Absolutely not. First of all, I don’t have any confidence that the Democrats in the House plan to honor that in the long term, and secondly, if abortion wasn’t even a part, it’s still going to create huge deficits. It’s a job-killing bill. It intrudes into an area of people’s responsibilities and rights as citizens. I think the bill on its face is unconstitutional, in that it requires the purchase of a product for a person to exercise his or her rights as a citizen. We already decided that’s unconstitutional when we outlawed the poll tax that required people to pay money in order to vote, because the Supreme Court declared that you can’t make people pay money in order to enjoy the rights and benefits of citizenship. That’s exactly what this bill does, and I think it’s an outrage and an insult to the Constitution and to the citizens of the United States.
