This is my first letter to the editor. However, I expect more from Congress, especially the leadership. I read with disgust a NY Times outside how Amgen pleads guilty to federal fraud and two weeks later lawmakers insert in the fiscal cliff legislation a $500 million cost to Medicare. Is it a coincidence that Amgen has large financial and political ties with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Senators Orrin Hatch and Max Baucus. Aren’t these the same senators that complain Medicare is broke? Shame!
