    You could go back pre Medicare act of 2003. Obama slowing closing the donut hole. Pre 2005 or 06 senior's paid full price for drugs, they no longer do that. He screwed nothing up pertaining to Part D only made it better. If you want to blame someone for some drugs not covered or taken from tier 1 to tier 4 for senior protection's you can blame CMS, bush, obama and trump.

    The costs of drugs and the cost to insure oneself tripled due to Obamacare...you can put your head in a cloud but it doesn't change that fact...it should not cost $1300 to $1600 to insure one person for a month....its more than tripled and drugs costs and hospital costs have risen right along with it....Obama took it and ruined it....Maybe you are not burdened with it because you have coverage through your husbands work....if that's the case you should do some homework and actually speak with people that fall under the assistance mark....and see how they are fairing before you call someone that knows more than you a moron....

    You can't seem to grasp Part D is not Obamacare and drugs are still going up for under and over 65 people.

    Debbie what do you think Obamacare is?...just an alternative healthcare plan?...its not it has changed the rules for doctors insurance companies hospitals and pharmaceutical companies...like I said do some research before you speak on a subject you know little about....the regulations within have increased drug costs and ruined what part D tried to fix....Trump has at least shamed the drug companies from raising costs at this time until a fix for Obamacare can be implemented....give him credit for that?.....no I bet you won't...

    Have you worked in the insurance business for 25 years? Then tell me what you have learned. I'll wait.

    I've battled to provide healthcare for my employees for 25 years...and Obamacare almost put us out of business and cost us 10 valued employees without providing better care for any of them...and it also contributed to the death of my neighbor and good friend due to lack of approved treatment....treatment he had before Obamacare....take the Obama blinders off lady and wake up........the media is hiding the truth from you...

    Again, obamacare and Medicare Part D are not the same thing. Blame the insurance company for your neighbors approved treatments being cut off and throw in his provider that either said "it won't do him any good in the long run or did not file the correct codes to get the treatments approved. I thought maybe I'd been in the wrong thread and rechecked, sure enough this thread is about Medicare Part D.

    You might have served your employees better if you dropped the group insurance and let them (maybe some) receive a subsidy.
