With such fulsome, fussy praise as the following, what credibility does the LA Times have left? Does the LA Times presume to dress up Congressman Waxman as some kind of SuperHero?
What legislative efforts has this man accomplished which has helped us in this country?
Climate Change or Global Warming, the science is far from settled. Congressman Waxman, however, has a penchant for denying reality, including the massive national debt which has just passed sixteen trillion dollars.
In politics you don’t hear the phrase “living legend” used very often without bursting out in laughter, but there are still a few individuals worthy of such a title and California Congressman Henry Waxman is one of them.
Living legend is "Orwellian Doublespeak", much like "universal health care" or "compassionate conservatism". This man is a legend in his own mind, and for the past thirty plus years, he has chosen his voters, who have voted him into office without expecting much from him in return.
Waxman is living in the past. He blames the Bush Administration without holding the Obama Administration for raising the national debt by five trillion dollars in just three years. He refuses to respond to the unseemly truth that he raided Medicare now to the tune of $ 716 billion to fund another entitlement which this country cannot afford.

If this Congressman really cared about the welfare and well-being of our children and grand-children, then why has he done nothing to stop the waste and fraud and profligate spending? His Obama-WaxmanCare legislation has done more harm than good, forcing hospitals to close, burying already overburdened medical physicians in paperwork, and laying on regulations and mandates which no one can keep up with.
