Quote – Representative William Adamson (D-GA)

[Government intervention would mean dealing with] a pestilential lot of spies, meddlers, and informers. The Federal Government was not created for the purpose of cutting your toe nails or corns. I believe there are millions of old women, white and black, who know more about good victuals and good eating than my friend Doctor Wiley and all his apothecary shop.

Representative William Adamson (D-GA) from Protecting America’s Health, p. 44 and The Toadstool Millionaires, p. 241.
