The president’s welfare program for big pharma masquerading as a social program for the elderly is going to bite Republicans in the ass:
Older voters, a critical component of Republican Congressional victories for more than a decade, could end up being a major vulnerability for the party in this year’s midterm elections, according to strategists in both parties. Paradoxically, one reason is the new Medicare drug benefit, which was intended to cement their loyalty.
Older Voters at the Polls During next week’s Congressional recess, Democrats are set to begin a major new campaign to highlight what Representative Nancy Pelosi of California, the Democratic leader, describes as “this disastrous Republican Medicare prescription drug plan.”
Just a bad bill since day one, and those who voted for it should get what they deserve.
