"Less than a year ago, the longest-serving member of the Senate, West Virginia Democrat Robert Byrd, said, 'I was one of the authors of the legislation that created the budget 'reconciliation' process in 1974, and I am certain that putting health-care reform . . . legislation on a freight train through Congress is an outrage that must be resisted.'"
--Senator Orin Hatch of Utah quoting Senator Robert Byrd
of West Virginia in today's Washington Post op-ed piece
on the healthcare debate.
