The Medicare Prescription drug program has become one of the most successful and efficient government benefit programs in history. Not that this is anything to "write home" about but American's seniors depend on it each day. President Obama is trying to radically change the the Medicare Prescription Drug Program. He is going to "fix" it with Medicaid-style price controls.( Oh no, here he goes again, trying to FIX something!) When the current President says he is going to fix something hold on to your wallets, the wallets of your kids and grand kids.
*Obama's Fix includes price controls and we all know how well that has helped in the past..........
Medicare Rx drug premiums for millions of seniors will increase by up to 40%.
Annual costs for almost 18 million seniors will increase by as much as $208.
Total out-of-pocket drug cost for seniors and other medicare beneficiaries will increase by up to $3.7 billion per year after the President fixes the system.
Sounds sort of like "the fix is in"
There are some Senators in DC that are standing up for seniors and fighting to protect seniors, find out if your senator is one.
Please, please remember all of this when it comes time to vote for President. It is a ways off but don't foget and don't let others forget.
