    Almost as ludicrous as the drug benefit plan passed for seniors, which is being paid entirely with borrowed money, at a tune of 500 billion per year!, the last I heard! You can blame that one on Bush! Makes that rail infrastructure loan look like small change! Good thing Bush can’t get reelected again!

      If you have a problem with this plan, take it up with Mr. Obama and your party. They had the power to repeal it. They chose not to. Why do apologists for Obama STILL have to blame everything on Mr. Bush? When, tell me, will these liberals take responsibility? They have controlled the levers of Washington for years … and yet you and they STILL blame George W. Bush?

    Whoa! I think I touched a raw spot! I’ll send over some numzit so you can cover it up! This issue is no different than the democrats maintaining that rediculous tax reduction plan in regards to the recent Social Security payroll tax fiasco. The Republicans after much whining went ahead and supported it so as not to be seen as against the middle class in an election year. This is no different than the Democrats not voting against the Drug Program for the elderly in an election year for President Bush! It’s all politics to keep themselves elected. Our career politicians will only accomplish anything when one of two things happen. We get term limits, or till we have a crisis situation that they have no choice but to correct things as they’re presently trying to do in Europe. Bottom line is, the democrats will probably win as the economy has improved and gas prices have started to go down again.
    In regards to repealing the Drug Plan? Get real. There is no politician in his right mind, who will support repeal of this when you consider the power of the senior voters. Especially in an election year! Look what happened to the Republican who rececently tried to suggest a medicare voucher system. He’s castigated because everyone feels they want to leave grandma and grandpa high and dry!

    Why don’t you write your tea party politicians and ask them to repeal the drug plan boondoggle! Are’nt they the ones who are so concerned about spending. Oh, excuse me I forgot. This is an election year so it’s out of the question!!

    Heard them talking about this last night on public radio. They interviewed a bunch of people who operate businesses along the stretch of highway that would be bypassed by the proposed rail system — restaurants, gas stations, etc. — and whose livelihoods would be ruined if the DesertXpress were built and all the people who currently drive the route switched to taking the train. More jobs lost, more businesses shuttered, more employees laid off, more bankruptcies… yeah, sounds like Obama’s America all right.
