Dionne on the Dec. 4 Gazette editorial page, in making a point, said the following: Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion “But when Congress did truly big things in the past — the Affordable Care Act, the major tax cuts of the Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush eras, the tax increases under Bill Clinton and Barack Obama — there was serious discussion over an extended time.”Serious discussion over an extended time in reference to the Affordable Care Act? Are you really serious?  How does one, with a straight face, claim this? Does “We need to pass it in order to know what’s in it” by Nancy Pelosi ring any bells? This was possibly the most financially affected bill to the public of the 21st century, yet it was passed not only without serious discussion, but with no discussion.E.J. Dionne is, deservedly, a well known and respected columnist. Yet even he apparently has been affected by the liberal disease of “Let not the truth be told, for liberalism trumps all,” especially when it trumps Trump, in spite of the truth and facts. Arthur C.
