Romney Plan: 'Blue-Light Special on Elder's Drugs'

Willard Mitt Romney was unable to come up with his long-promised cheaper alternative to Prescription Advantage. Instead, the Fraud Governor has decided to reduce expenditures by covering fewer elders. He will limit new enrollment in the state's prescription drug program for seniors to just the month of August. And, yes - he announced his plan in the waning days of July. (source: Boston Globe, 7/24/2003) Right around the same time he killed the Quinn Bill reforms. (source: Boston Globe, 7/25/2003)

(The Romney Administration is now spending more on Quinn Bill enhancements ($100 million) than prescription drug coverage for elders ($96 million).)

Great. What's next - offering free dental care to anyone who can board a Red Line train out of Central Square between 11:27 a.m. and 11:29 a.m. on the third Tuesday of the fourth month of each odd-numbered year? That would keep costs down, and allow Romney to claim that he had developed a cutting edge dental plan.

Remember Team Reform's excuse the last time they were unable to construct a discount drug solution? Ronald Preston said "I’m not Rumplestiltskin. I can’t spin straw into gold." (source: RiaF, 5/13/2003)

No, you're not Rumplestiltskin. You're Sam Walton.
