Bad medicine for the senate

Senators swallow hard over Dayton’s medicine

Sen. Dayton (D-Minn) came up with a amazing approach to show his contempt of the Medicare prescription drug bill. He proposed an ammendment to the bill that lowers senators’ own drug benefits to match what is being proposed for senior citizens.

Of course, the senators passed the ammendment 93-3. What else could they do? If they didn’t vote yes on the ammendment they would publically confirm that they are the two-faced, back-stabbing, ass-hats we all know they are.

You can read more of Dayton’s comments on this issue at his press office’s web site.
