Senator Jon Cornyn sponsored an amendment that would make high income Medicare beneficiaries to pay higher premiums for prescription drugs. It went down in flames.
Not before it got doused by with rhetorical kerosene by Democrat Sen. Sherrod Brown who claimed that Republicans "come to the floor of this chamber ... over and over, from every different direction they attack one of the single greatest programs that this government has ever done."
As opposed to shoving every senior into a VA or Canadian style drug program Senator?
How about enlisting seniors, doctors and others to save Medicare money by not using services and staying healthy? We have taken some steps in that direction but I fear that we are not going to get much traction with Democrats in control...
