MIDDLE CLASS IS BEING SQUEEZED OUT OF EXISTENCE

In the past four years, my health care premium has doubled, my prescription co-pay has doubled and my Medicare premium has almost doubled.

I received my Medicare prescription card, presented it to the pharmacy and was told it is not for people with my plan or income.

In another two years I will be at the poverty level, and then I will get a break on all of my health care needs. I guess this is just how President Bush planned it -- to eliminate the middle-income people.
