Empty Promises Aren’t the Medicare Prescription America’s Seniors Need

For eight years seniors have waited for leadership from the Clinton-Gore administration to solve America’s Medicare and prescription drug crisis. The White House has done nothing. Worse, this administration walked away from, and the House Democrats walked out on, bipartisan efforts to strengthen Medicare and provide prescription drug coverage options for seniors, much like the benefits enjoyed by members of Congress and all federal employees.

Medicare and Prescription Drug Coverage for Seniors Citizens: Empty Promises Aren’t the Prescription America’s Seniors Need

For eight years seniors have waited for leadership from the Clinton-Gore Administration to solve America’s Medicare and prescription drug crisis. The White House has not led—worse, this administration walked away from and the House Democrats walked out on bipartisan efforts to strengthen Medicare and provide prescription drug coverage options for seniors. Now, Vice President Gore is playing politics and pushing a dangerous Medicare plan that promises more than it provides. The Gore plan actually will:

Activist Handbook 2000: Medicare and Prescription Drugs

Medicare Reform and Prescription Drugs Why CSE Cares The Issue: CSE believes that health care services are products that are best allocated through the decisions of individuals in the private marketplace. Health care services are, at times, critically important, and a market-based system offers the best chance to expand choices and control costs: government control of health care is typically inequitable, inefficient and irrational. Medicare, which provides health care to America’s elderly and disabled, is a case in point. The Problem:

What is Washington Doing to Your Medicare?

Like a lot of things these days, health care for the elderly and disabled is getting more complicated. This booklet explains the basics of Medicare, the problems now facing Medicare and ways to fix the program. Although this easy-to-read guide won’t answer all your questions about Medicare, it will help health care consumers and taxpayers understand the consequences of government-run solutions versus the benefits of a consumer-based Medicare system.

Clinton's Band-Aid Approach to Medicare Reform

President Clinton has finally offered his new plan for Medicare, but it isn't clear why he calls it a "reform" package. Clinton's Medicare solutions are about as effective as several small band-aids on an Ebola patient. His two big ideas - expanding Medicare and spending projected surplus tax revenues - will likely make Medicare's long-term problems worse.

Capitol Comment 267 - H.R. 1495: Kennedy-Style Tax-and-Spend Liberalism at its Finest

Congressional liberals have stepped up their campaign for a big government program to control seniors’ access to medicines. They recently filed a petition to force a vote on H. R. 1495. This bill is the house version of Sen. Ted Kennedy’s (D-Mass.) “Access to Prescription Medications in Medicare Act of 1999,” a universal entitlement program that would dramatically increase Medicare costs.1 Under the bill, also known as S. 841, Medicare would pay most of the prescription costs for all retirees through Medicare Part B (see table).

Capitol Comment 268 - H.R. 644: Price Controls for Seniors' Prescription Drugs

House Democrats, led by Rep. Tom Allen (D-Maine), have introduced the Prescription Drug Fairness for Seniors Act of 1999 (H.R. 664). More recently, they filed a petition to force a vote on the bill. By instituting price controls through the back door, the bill inflicts rationing on seniors, forces higher medical costs on everyone else, freezes the development of new cures, and means higher taxes for us all.1

Issue Analysis 101 - Clinton, Gore, and Congress: Medicare Reforms That Don’t Measure Up

Prompted by a host of concerns, politicians have begun to map out significant changes to Medicare’s operations, benefits, and financing. Some look to this year as an opportunity for the nation to finally address the broken Medicare system. Others, with an eye toward the election, would rather use the opportunity to bolster their political fortunes. But in the rush to propose more laws, agencies, taxes, and benefits, these politicians have generally overlooked retirees’ biggest need – more choices.
