A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Shocking!: New York Times columnist Paul Krugman continues his articles bashing Americas health care system, ignoring his long-ago promise to offer solutions for Social Security.


There was a brief flurry of outrage when Congress passed the 2003 Medicare bill. The news media reported on the scandalous vote in the House of Representatives: Republican leaders violated parliamentary procedure, twisted arms and perhaps engaged in bribery to persuade skeptical lawmakers to change their votes in a session literally held in the dead of night.


Standard Krugman whine. Oh my gosh! Arm-twisting on the House floor! Lawmakers working into the night! "Violating" parlimentary procedure! The horror, the horror!

This sort of thing never once happened when Democrats were in charge. No, they're pure as the driven snow!

It seems to be the standard line for conservative bloggers (or whatever you consider yourself) these days to excuse whatever illegal, unethical or stupid thing done by a Republican by saying the Democrats were just as bad; the Democrats are doing it to. Weak. I thought the Repubs were supposed to be the party of values? Your fifth grade excuses are pathetic and the Dems and Repubs make me sick.
 
I agree with comment #1. The last medicare bill is a disaster. Both parties were responsible!
 
Great blog I hope we can work to build a better health care system as we are in a major crisis and health insurance is a major aspect to many.
