Parroting the White House Line

In his column last Friday ["A Wake-Up Call for American Voters," Oct. 16], Michael J. Ring '01 does a good job of repeating the latest White House line - attacking the Republicans to draw attention from President Clinton. It's interesting that we have only heard this "do-nothing Congress" chorus after Congress voted for an impeachment inquiry. Ring also assumes that the more new laws Congress heaps on us, the better, and that the more closely Congress governs by the latest opinion polls, the better. Too many Democrats holding these assumptions may be the reason why Republicans are now in power.
