WASHINGTON — This is what happens when the soaring promises of Hope and Change give way to old-style political prostitution on the Potomac.
President Obama won last year vowing to change the way Washington works.
In less than 12 months, though, all the Democrats’ promises of honesty, openness and common sense have sunken into the same old sordid sewer that has forever defined Washington as the loathsome, dishonest and wasteful place that it is.
The result is the health-care train wreck.
We must lower the skyrocketing costs, Dems said.
Now they are willing to spend any amount of your money it takes to get some kind of health-care legislation passed.
And they don’t care how much their own accountants tell them the bill will actually raise the costs of health care.
We will usher in a new era of openness, they vowed.
