Look who's talking.

To all,
This is who is leading our country.




Bush Explains Medicare Drug Bill
WOMAN IN AUDIENCE: "I don't really understand. How is the new plan  going to fix the problem?"

PRESIDENT BUSH: (Verbatim response):

"Because the -- all which is on the table begins to address the big cost drivers. For example, how benefits are calculated, for example,  is on the table. Whether or not benefits rise based upon wage increases or price increases. There's a series of parts of the formula that are being considered. And when you couple that, those different cost drivers, affecting those -- changing  those with personal accounts, the idea is to get what has been promised more likely to be -- or closer delivered to that has been promised. Does that make any
sense to you? It's kind of muddled. Look, there's a series of things  that cause the -- like, for example, benefits are calculated based upon the increase of wages, as opposed to the increase of prices. Some have suggested that we calculate -- the benefits will rise based upon inflation, supposed to wage increases. There is a reform that would help solve the red if that were put into effect. In other words, how fast benefits grow, how fast the promised benefits grow, if those --  if that growth is affected, it will help on the red."

Forward this to others -- so they, too, can understand...
I feel everyone should have this explanation.  Makes us want to send our kids to Yale!  


   So if we can't make it as writers, It should be easy to become a polititian. What do you think?  mary
