Granny Needs Hers Meds

This has not been a good week to be a pharmacist. On Jan. 1st, the new Medicare Prescription Program for seniors kicked in. The old folks have been holding back all thier prescriptions until 1/1 to get them cheaper, and now we're off to the races! I've been going in early, coming home late, in at 4 am on Wednesday for inventory, down one technicion, and the other pharmacist's wife is ready to have a baby any minute.

As a conservative, I'm not a fan of a $400 billion program that is mostly unfunded and not means tested. But the President has never seen a program that he didn't like, so here we are. Not to mention the fact that the government has made the program so complicated that NO ONE can understand it, much less my 89 year old mother, who is confused by the phone bill!

So, wish me luck. Granny needs her meds.
