Commentary: DeMint, Graham let S.C. down on health care overhaul

Two South Carolina legislators had the opportunity to shape the historic health care bill President Obama signed into law on Tuesday in a way more of their constituents would have loved. Because the Senate version of the bill was going to be the foundation of the law, Sens.

Both shirked their responsibility to the state to walk lockstep with the GOP.
