!!! URGENT: This concerns everybody, please read inside !!!

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Un-partisan Moderate, Nov 18, 2003.

  1. If you have a parent or a grandparent on Social Security, this
    absolutely concerns you in the most profound way:

    Congress is about to bushwhack seniors with a "prescription drug
    beneift" that will cost them nearly $4,000 a year to access, and
    will immediately cost them $35 a month even if they never take any
    medicine.

    This legislation is no more than another corporate welfare manuveur
    by the current administration, labeled as a "benefit" that is
    actually a "detriment" and will COST taxpayer billions, while the
    drug companies MAKE billions - and our ancestors will suffer
    immensely from this almost immediately!!!!

    All this so President Bush can say he passed a drug benefit law?
    That's all it is: another lie, another "Big Lie" to be spun,
    pissing on our legs and saying "ain't the rain nice?"

    Please, if you have any doubts, research the particulars, and write
    your Congressmen, and especially your Senators and just tell them
    "NO!"

    The answer is to reform regulations regarding big USA pharmacutical
    companies, not charge my grandmother and grandfather $35 each a
    month, and then a $3,200 per year 'out of pocket expense' each
    before they can access the benefit - while the pharmacutical
    companies drive their prices through the ceiling in anticipation of
    these new regulations.

    Please, write you congressmen, and tell everybody you know to write
    and "JUST SAY NO" to this madness. We will all be seniors someday,
    and the time is NOW to stop this dead in it's tracks.

    I thank you, and I'm sure your grandparents and parents will thank
    you as well.

    As Mark Twain noted: "It could probably be shown by facts and figures
    that there is no distinctly native American criminal class except
    Congress."

    Congress is in the pockets of big business, bought and paid for. The
    White House is the property of lunatic right-wing bible-thumpers.

    It's no wonder our seniors are getting kicked in the butt with a plan
    that Newt Gingrich would be proud of.

    God, how I so love a good controversy, particularly one about Medicare in a

    rebuttals, and rebuttals to rebuttals to read by morning!

    My grandmother gets free prescription drugs
    My parents get free prescription drugs
    My kids get free prescription drugs
    My wife gets free prescription drugs.
    I pay £6.30 per item, but then I hardly ever need any.

    So, remind me, how does whatever Congress is doing affect me.

    *you* should research the particulars so you have some idea what you're
    talking about.

    Yea, right; again, *not* true. You really should check facts before
    spouting off about something you have no idea about.

    I'll write and thank them for finally doing something regarding prescription
    drugs. I could use the coverage.
