Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA), a physician, told Axios that he favors cognition tests for aging leaders of all three branches of government.
Noting he wasn’t talking about specific people, Cassidy said: “It’s usually noticeable. So anybody in a position of responsibility who may potentially be on that slope, that is of concern. And I’m saying this as a doctor.”
He added: “I’m told that there have been senators in the past who, at the end of their Senate terms were senile. I’m told that was true of senators of both parties.”Save to Favorites
