    >The genetics of stupidity
    The Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008 is an Act of Congress in the United States designed to prohibit the use of genetic information in health insurance and employment. . . . In 2008, on April 24 H.R. 493 passed the Senate 95-0. The bill was then sent back to the House of Representatives and passed 414-1 on May 1; the lone dissenter was Congressman Ron Paul.
