Dupe me again George, Oh yeah!

Can we get someone to challenge Feinstein?

First President Bush wanted to "reform" Medicare.


"Wrestling with the complexities of how to add prescription drug coverage to the Medicare program has been high on the political to-do list for at least five Congresses. This year, more than ever, there is a glimmer of hope that all the debate, formulas and analyses might coalesce into law.

That would be good news for today's seniors. But if a final agreement is devoid of even the smallest steps to make Medicare more financially sound, it would be bad news for tomorrow's seniors."

Then she voted for it and...

Medicare's new prescription drug program will cost taxpayers $720 billion over its first 10 years, with costs reaching $100 billion a year by the middle of the next decade, according to a new estimate by the Bush administration.

Then, apparently, she read the bill.

Now she says:

This new information further demonstrates what appears to be an attempt to dupe Congress and win passage of the legislation,” said one such lawmaker, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., calling for an investigation by the Senate Finance Committee.

Now President Bush wants to "reform" Social-Security.

As you know, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R) of South Carolina has been running a bipartisan phase-out book club up on the hill. And my sources tell me that the participants are ...

Baucus (D)
Carper (D)
Collins (R)
Conrad (D)
Feinstein (D)
Graham (R)
Grassley (R)
Gregg (R)
Lieberman (D)
Lincoln (D)
Ben Nelson (D)
Bill Nelson (D)

This isn't even ideological. It is just manifest incompetence, and stupidity. Who could challenge Feinstein?

Well, there's
this guy.

And this guy.

And then there's her (she might want to re-design her webpage, though).
