<<Compared to the 100 million dollar buy off for Dodd on health care, and the 43 million dollar buy off for the NE Senator...despite his governor and other senator totally opposed, and thanks to 100 million plus in buyoff to LA.......
I don't know what they got in Nebraska and Louisiana, but you'll be relieved to know that Dodd's $100 million payoff will go to the Uconn Health Center in Farmington -- a wealthy area West of Hartford home to many insurance executives. It's not like a bunch of poor people, or God forbid, illegal aliens will benefit.
I'm guessing that a good many young people are experiencing how the Congress actually works and are getting a realistic civics lesson.
Many will probably be lifelong supporters of limited government and the Republican Party, although there has been a regrettable gap between the two in recent years.
