Levin May Get An Earful in Mt. Pleasant on Bush Prescription Drug Plan

U.S. Sen Carl Levin is gathering information from constituents about the new Medicare Part D prescription drug plan pushed through Congress in the face of solid oppostion from Democrats. Now that the plan has gone into effect, the $20 billion boondoggle for the pharmaceutical industry is proving to be a fiasco, just like other Bush proposals.

Sen. Levin is on a 10-stop tour of the state to hear input from seniors mostly. He will be stopping in Mt. Pleasant at the Senior Center on Isabella Road. He is scheduled to be there from 1:15 to 2:15 p.m. after an earlier stop at the Farwell senior feeding site. Other stops include Flint and Grand Rapids.

There is little doubt he will hear a lot of complaints about priviatizing another government program that should not logically be privatized, just like port administration. More of that later.
