Garrett Overrides Bush

Well, who says you don't get a second chance in life to do the right thing?

Whether it was actually realizing Medicare Advantage was bankrupting Medicare; or dealing with the political reality that he'd get hammered by this vote in November, Representative Scott Garrett voted to override the President's veto of the Medicare reform bill.

I've been a constant critic of Garrett's repeated votes against securing Medicare's future. Garrett stood with the President initially, but this time around he was with the people. As a District, we're not on the wrong side of an issue for once.
