Via La Times seniors were apparently pretty pissed on Turkey day:
Although the sign-up period for the new Medicare prescription drug benefit is barely two weeks old, pressure is mounting in Congress to extend it so that senior citizens can have more time to understand a program many find dauntingly complex.Healthy Policyites won't be the least bit surprised by this news. If you're new to the site and want to know more info on Medicare Part D (I like to call it Medi-Mess) head over to the Medicare category.
The registration period is scheduled to end May 15. But lawmakers who have been in their home districts during the Thanksgiving holiday have reported being besieged by elderly constituents.
