With Jefferson being a Farmer, I wonder how he would look at the Health Care Debate,? If 10% of his cattle were sick would he look into changing the feed, or argue with the vet over the bill? Would he fault the FDA or the Insurance Company, for the poor health of the people.

Um,
Your link says nothing. It complains about misusing a quote, when in fact, proves nothing. Paraphrasing is not a distortion. It is unfortunately, but not distored.

There is only one problem: McDonnell distorted the Jefferson quote. For the entire story go here:
