Future Senior Citizens Can Thank GW & the GOP-controlled Congress!

Recall the slimy, unprecedented Republican-led 3AM vote on the Medicare Bill??

This in today's USA Today:

With a new Medicare drug benefit set to begin in 2006, Americans 65 and older can expect to spend a large and growing share of their Social Security checks on Medicare premiums and expenses, previously undisclosed federal data show.
Information the Bush administration excluded from its 2004 report on the Medicare program shows that a typical 65-year-old can expect to spend 37% of his or her Social Security income on Medicare premiums, co-payments and out-of-pocket expenses in 2006. That share is projected to grow to almost 40% in 2011 and nearly 50% by 2021.

And yet GW's lead continues to widen in the polls.... The public deserves what they get.
