“Medicare Perspective Index” — Grim Parody of Harper’s Sheds Light on Medicare Debate

Ed Haislmaier has put together, with a nod to Harper’s Index, a “Medicare Perspective Index” (PDF file) to illuminate some of the more striking facts of the medicare prescription drug debate. It’s worth reading and scary stuff when you consider how big some of the numbers are and how quickly Congress is voting on this. There’s not time enough for public input — even the Congressmen won;t have time to read the bill before they vote, if the current schedule holds.

Our David Almasi (and possibly Ed Haislmaier as well) will speak at a press conference on this subject at 11 AM today organized by the National Taxpayers Union.
