Medicare prescription drug benefit.

As noted repeatedly in this space, Congress is currently fighting over the details of a projected $400-billion-Medicare-prescription-drug-benefit-that-we-can't-really-afford. In an editorial today, the Christian Science Monitor appears to say they wouldn't mind seeing the benefit enacted if only Congress would get around to trimming the budget in some eminently trimmable ways (as recently reported by the Government Accounting Office). It's a thought, ain't it?
