Seniors Facing Impossible Task
The Washington Post
The Medicare Discount drug cards were an obvious political ploy, an attempt to give the Bush administration an excuse to use public funds for political purposes. The fact that the administration set it up so that seniors could not make an informed decision about which Discount Plan to enter gives the lie to any claim that they were simply trying to give seniors some near term help.
Ironically, Seniors trying to navigate the system now, and seniors screwed on June 1st, when the discount plans have their subscribers locked in, probably won't be voting Bush in November.
