The health-care debate was the catalyst of Maximus Libertas (ML).  There have been numerous articles that have appeared on the ML Facebook page since launching in April, but with time, news tends to gets watered down.  This page lists many of the headlines from the inception of the health-care bill, and paints the big picture.  This is now being maintained as a historical reference for future comparison.  Not all provisions are bad, but the means of obtaining them is questionable at best.  Links are provided, but some may require a search to read the entire article.
