Nothing New Here

I was listening to NPR yester morn and there was a Senator (I think) from Maine (I reckon) who was speaking of the Affordable Care Act, saying that he hatred the execution, but was still firmly on board with the intention and aim of the law.

He said that he recalled that when Medicare was extended by adding the Plans D, the prescription drug plans, there was a good deal of chaos, people did not understand, and seniors were kvetching about it.

My mother was totally stymied by it, to the extent that she and my father probably spent at least 25% more money that they needed to. They bought in Canada, but even those prices were sometimes higher than prescriptions covered by a Plan D.
