    Reminds me of the photo of the tea partier with his badly scrawled sign reading "Keep your government hands off my medicare!".

    I was a strong supporter of President Bush, but feel his support of the MMA in 2003 was a mistake. Medicare didn't cover drugs until this legislation was signed into law. It would be nice if we could pay for any drug prescribed for any senior, but we can't afford it. Health plans must be priced to cover claims. Drug formularies and related coverage restrictions are a necessary part of controlling escalating costs.
