The out of touch liberals in the Congress want to use the fact that "Ted is Dead" to ram through socialist health care that the majority of the country clearly does not want.
What a novel concept: The Republicans could have used Ronald Reagan's death to put a wrecking ball to the Department of Education, as well as other federal programs. (Quick note-There was no Department of Education until it was signed into law by President Carter in 1979 during his first term. Carter's second term is going on right now. Carter built the bureaucracy known as the Department of Education in return for an endorsement from the United Federation of Teachers.)
If the Democrats in Congress want to pass laws in memory of Teddy, how about raising the penalties for drunk driving and leaving the scene of an accident on federal property?
I think we may find more bipartisan support on that than on health care.
