Did anyone see that woman who asked Gore about medicare? Could the Democrats have scripted it any better? I mean, if they didn't plant her to ask that question, that has to be the most amazing bit of luck, and on the same day Bush is proclaimed to be gaining on Gore in the female and old folk vote.
I have to say, though, when a senior citizen has to pick up cans by the side of the road just to pay for medication and food concurrently, something is very wrong with the picture. I don't mean something with pharmaceutical companies, because I will always protest price ceilings or any forced interference in a market, ESPECIALLY an R&D dependant industry like medication, but somewhere else, and I fear the answer is Medicare.
