Someone should remind Rep. John Dingell that many Americans can think beyond what we’re told. For example, his comments about the Medicare drug bill have another side:
“Republicans had their shot at making the drug bill work, and seniors are still not getting the prices they deserve,” said Representative John D. Dingell of Michigan, the chief sponsor of the Democratic proposal.
“Republicans chose to take care of their friends in the drug industry,” Mr. Dingell said. “It’s our turn to prove that the bill can work for seniors.”
And now Democrats have their shot at making the drug bill work. Does anyone doubt that Democrats will choose to take care of their friends in the “senior citizen industry”? All they’re trying to prove is that Congress can ignore the laws of economics. Good luck with that. I’m sure the Republicans are to blame for not effectively repealing those laws. But Democrats will have better luck. Right?
