Message: I care

This is compassionate conservatism:

A day after President Bush heralded his efforts to help the elderly cope with increased medical expenses, federal officials announced the largest premium increase in dollars in the Medicare program's history, raising the monthly expense by $11.60 to $78.20.


The rise has nothing to do with a program that will start in 2006 to offer prescription drugs, for which beneficiaries must pay a separate premium.

And Mr. Bush's plan to solve this problem? Privatize Social Security so people will have less money to pay for this, and tort reform, of course!
