Wal-Mart Should Run the Medicare Drug Plan

I didn't realize that the Republicans were so infatuated with Government-funded job creation programs.

But they just expanded the Medicare drug program call center. It was 150 folks. It's now 4,500 folks. That is a, hmm, I don't know, a 10x or more increase?

Yikes! Maybe they all live in Ted Stevens' district.

And I guess this is what they mean about "states rights":

California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger ordered an emergency plan Thursday
allowing the state to pay for the drugs for the next two weeks. The state
will temporarily supply seniors and the disabled with "lifesaving medications
they are in danger of losing because of significant problems with the new
federal Medicare prescription drug program," Schwarzenegger said in a
statement.
