As I wrote nearly one month ago, the Medicare prescription drug benefit (read: pharmaceutical company give-away) recently enacted by Congress is DBIEA (Dead Before It Even Arrives). The Cheney^H^H^H^H^H^HBush Administration no longer mentions the Medicare drug benefit in campaign speeches. It seems that senior citizens generally have a very dim view of the Legislation, and they remember quite well who helped to ramrod it through Congress.
