More from the Fogey Lobby

Let's be blunt: AARP and others in the old fogey lobby are just as much a special interest as are drug companies. This complaint about the Medicare proposal is simply whining about which special interest gets free government subsidies. This whole Medicare prescription drug benefit is just another gov't welfare program for seniors. Despite this, I'm inclined to support it because Ted Kennedy is against it, but something tells me he simply doesn't want Bush to get credit for it, rather than having an actual complaint about another big gov't giveaway.
