Statement by Senator John Breaux (Democrat – Louisiana)
Mr. Chief Justice and my colleagues. Thank you very much, Mr. Chief Justice, as so many people have said before, for serving with your patience and your fairness. If you care to extend your time with us, I would invite you to help preside over my Medicare commission–if you would like to help out in that regard.
