(( For millions of Americans over 65_the key to a better, healthier life is found in prescription drugs. But many say those medications are simply too expensive. The President says he has the answer_a benefit to cover prescription drugs for everyone on Medicare.
The prescription drug benefit is the cornerstone of the President's Medicare reform plan. Participation would be voluntary. And seniors would still have to pay 50-percent for their prescriptions. AARP lobbyist Tricia Smith says_it's the right idea. Tricia Smith/ AARP : IT MAKES A LOT OF SENSE TO HAVE PRESCRIPTION DRUGS IN MEDICARE BECAUSE IT IS GOOD MEDICINE) Opponents of the President's plan don't argue many seniors need help. But they say it's impossible to offer a prescription drug benefit to everyone on Medicare without throwing the program into further crisis. Bob Moffit/The Heritage Foundation: WE OUGHT TO TARGET THE RESOURCES. TARGET THE HELP TO THE PEOPLE WHO NEED IT MOST

Sen. Phil Graham/ R-Texas WE'RE PROMISING SOMETHING, CLEARLY, WE CAN'T DELIVER But the President insists it can be done_by using part of a predicted one-trillion dollar budget surplus. And even opponents of HIS plan seem to agree Medicare will likely cover prescription drugs in the future. The question is how and for whom.)
