President Clinton wants prescription drug coverage under Medicare that is: UNIVERSAL...offered to everyone. with SHARED COSTS...most recipients would have to pay a premium and part of the prescription cost. And VOLUNTARY...nobody would be forced to take part.

But by one estimate, it would take six BILLION dollars a year to cover prescriptions for only the poorest three million Medicare recipients...let alone all 39 million, with 76 million aging baby boomers on their heels.
The astronomical costs are why critics insist the benefit shouldn't be offered to the wealthy...or to the large numbers of people who are covered under other plans.
