POSTER CHILD FOR ABUSE…AT DEATH’S DOOR?
Sen. Byrd In Hospital…6.27.2010
WASHINGTON — Sen. Robert C. Byrd, who holds the record as the longest-serving member of Congress, is seriously ill in a Washington-area hospital. The West Virginia Democrat’s office says the 92-year-old lawmaker has been in the hospital since late last week.
He has been confined to a wheelchair, but was present and voted “yes” for final Senate passage of the health care reform bill in March. His wife, Erma, died in 2006.
This man is the poster child for political abuse who could have retired 20 years ago in luxury but instead stayed on for the power and to feed at the taxpayer cafe. Then Byrd (ex-KKK member and democrat) boo hooed how he missed his wife who died in 2006. The usual absurd democrat upsidedown thinking.
Congress should have mandated age 80 retirement anyway. Its a shame his vote for socialized medicine can’t be undone either. I doubt the other socialist fossils will learn from this…they also will wobble thru the congressional halls using a walker or in a wheelchair due to age…if it means power wielding. May he be replaced with someone respecting our Founders’ intent.
