another mind-boggling 60 minutes segment

awhile back i posted a clip from 60 minutes on the state of our fiscal irresponsibility in the u.s.  i believe that some sort of spending limits need to be enacted and enforced on our lawmakers that are running up the bill for future generations.  the prescription drug bill was mentioned as the worst example of this out-of-control spending.  just watch the segment and see if you do not feel the same way.  i can't believe the senators that blocked the bill to renegotiate prices can face their constituents.  there should be riots in the streets.  every time i pay a medicare tax, too much money is going straight to the pharmaceutical industry just because medicare does not negotiate the prices.  it's absolutely disgusting.
