Many seniors say issues which are usually in the forefront seem to have taken a back seat to war and terrorism.

They come from different political backgrounds but they all seem to be in agreement that prescription drugs cost too much.

Seniors are also concerned about possible cuts to Social Security and Medicare because of those high costs. Seniors tell us they care about these issues but equally important is the war on terror and the president's handling of the war in Iraq.
