Even though the program was a liberal's dream come true, and even though it was going to provide billions in free or discounted scrips for seniors, the AARP ran ads and held rallies claiming that the Republicans hated seniors, and this bill was all about the pharms.
Buried inside the LA Times business section on page C3, today Saturday Oct 1, the director of health strategies for the AARP, Cheryl Matheis says this:
There is a lot of good in this for the seniors. It is turning out to be more generous coverage than people anticipated.
Shouldn't that be a headline with a personal apology to "W?" These people have absolutely no shame.
