Who Should Apologize to the Taxpayer?

Here's who deserves the apology: a 75-year-old retired CNA who's trying to pay a $700 monthly mortgage out of a $850 Social Security pension plus odd jobs, only several little bones in her arm have been broken and she may be in a cast for a year, so she's not doing odd jobs. And her Medicare benefits are endangered by a "Chicago Politics" scheme to force everybody to buy into the insurance racket.

Which Representative should apologize first? Wouldn't it be refreshing if they tried to outdo each other in displays of super-politeness, like old-model politicians, instead of bickering like kids on a rainy afternoon?
