ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the efforts of the Republican Party to privatize Medicare under the U.S. Medicare Modernization Act. The act prohibits Medicare from bargaining with drug companies. Republicans are said to be using taxpayer money to make the private health insurance alternatives to Medicare attractive to beneficiaries. Three separate insurance plans are required from beneficiaries who want to stay in traditional Medicare and enjoy prescription drug coverage.
