Observations on politics, the media and life in Massachusetts and beyond from the left side of the road.

The Bush Administration is playing offense again on Medicare, touting the fact that two million people signed up in the last month. They need to fight back in the face of overwhelming evidence this giveaway program for big pharmaceutical companies is turning out to be a liability.

GOP congressmen are using the DeLay break to hit their districts and try to convince seniors the benefit is the greatest thing sliced doughnut holes, er, bread.

But perhaps they should read this Los Angeles Times piece to get a better sense about what they have perpetrated in the name of political gain. Yes, yes, I know it's an opinion piece, but there's some good first-hand reporting too.
