<<For MANY, even perhaps for most people, Plan D can often be wonderful, if they have many costly prescriptions. But for many, it is often a crapshoot, and my point is simply that I think it should not HAVE to be so complex. Private industry... competition... I know the arguments, many of which depend on political leanings, sadly. SOMETIMES, it's better for the CONSUMER if they do not have to wade through so many "choices".I harbor NO political leanings, per se; I simply like things that work and do the job best.Vermonter >> Welcome to the world of means tested entitlements, Vermonter. Democrats wrang their hands about low income people who couldn't afford to buy meds ---- those people, the genuinely impoverished, get their meds for little or nothing in the way of premiums, fees, co-payments or deductibles. Nobody said that the well off middle class retiree like yourself should get a free ride.The program is structured to give middle class retirees like yourself a substantial incentive to buy into the program and help support it financially. Instead of REQUIRING you to buy into it whether you like it or not, you are given a choice, which you are using to decide not to participate.So what's your complaint? You are not participating. That's the only choice you really have to make. I don't understand why you aren't HAPPY with that option, rather than being compelled to participate in a program you don't like. Believe me, tens of millions of working people would like to have the chance to opt out of Social Security and quit paying taxes that make their way to you as benefits each month. THOSE people have something to complain about, in my view. You do not. Seattle Pioneer
