    The thing that bugged me today on the
    New 10-year figures for prescription aid to seniors were released
    today (IIRC), $750B

    Previously released number two years ago was $450B

    Of course the DemonCrats were all up in arms, but it was quickly
    determined (and reported on Fox News) that previous TEN-YEAR figures
    were start-up conditions, and included two years of NO benefits.
    Current figures include benefits every year with increasing benefits
    as you go further out in time.

    A number of rational DemonCrats backed off on their complaints... of
    course jerk-off Kennedy did not... just scream, scream, scream...

    But what miffed me most was that the ABC evening news reported the
    situation as if "W" had lied about the costs... true news management
    in action :-(

    The first I heard about this was on NPR, their report included the math
    showing how it worked out. They also "implied" that the folk in congress
    didn't understand the costs of the bill when they voted it in and that now
    there will have to be changes. Others may suggest that they said "now
    that we got re-elected ..." but I will not.
