"I have a Ph.D., and it's too complicated to suit me."WILLIAM Q. BEARD, 74, of Wichita, Kan., on Medicare's new prescription drug plan...I haven't read the text of the new plan, but it sounds to me like another way to abscond with a person's social security benefit:
...The drug benefit, estimated to cost $724 billion over 10 years, is the biggest expansion of Medicare since its creation in 1965 and is often described as Mr. Bush's biggest achievement in domestic policy.
The new prescription drug coverage will benefit people on Medicare in three important ways. First, it will help all seniors and Americans with disabilities pay for prescription drugs, no matter how they pay for their medicine now. Seniors who have no drug coverage and have average prescription drug costs will see savings of at least 50 percent. And seniors who have the highest drug costs will receive special help. Starting in January, once a senior has spent $3,600 in a year, Medicare will cover 95 percent of all prescription costs.This got me to thinking. Is there really anything put into motion by the W, Rove and Co clan that is any good? I couldn't think of any so I thought I would post a challenge - call it Windspike's Sunday Blogger Challenge: Can anyone come up with something good wholly sponsored, planned, or implemented by the W, Rove and Co? If so, what is it and explain why it is good. This is, of course, based on your opinion.
