Bush Administration Innocent Again


The Bush Administration continues to be perfect--it never admits to having been wrong about anything. For example, an internal investigation at the Department of Health and Human services finds that threatening federal bureaucrats who wanted to reveal that the new seniors drug benefit program is going to cost between $100 and $200 billion more than President Bush says it is broke no laws.

"It sounds as though the Bush administration examined itself and found it did nothing wrong," says Representative Pete Stark (D-Calif) in the New York Times.

If it's true that it's not against the law to mislead Congress, we've really got to change the law or the Administration. In fact, why not both?
