Another Bush Con Job

| | Comments (0)

The NY Times today is picking up on a story I saw a couple days earlier entitled Medicare Expert Says He Was Told To Withhold cost, which ran on Friday.

It is a detailed read about how the Bush administration knew the true cost of the Medicare legislation, and told at least one official who thought Congress should know the true cost, he'd be fired if he said anything. When the President deceives the Congress, he decieves the people of the U.S. for Congresspersons are the people's representatives from their local states and districts.

The people simply can no longer trust this administration which continues to justify any means by the ends it achieves. It simply defies reason that Kerry's adminstration could be any worse if it tried. Since a Kerry administration would have a Republican Congress keeping excesses in check.

UPDATE: Add the following to this story from the NY Times, entitled: A Watchdog Sees Flaws in Bush's Ads on Medicare

The General Accounting Office, an investigative arm of Congress, said on Wednesday that advertisements and brochures prepared by the Bush administration to publicize a new Medicare law, although not illegal, misrepresented the prescription drug benefits that would be offered to millions of elderly and disabled people.

The fliers and advertisements do not violate restrictions on the use of federal money for "publicity or propaganda purposes," but they are flawed by "omissions and other weaknesses," said the legal opinion by Anthony H. Gamboa, general counsel of the accounting office.
