Video: Hillary on Medicare Part D – ‘We Should Scrap This and Start Over’

On February 2, 2006 the Senate Special Committee on Aging held a hearing on the implementation of the new Medicare Part D drug benefit. Democrats including Senator Hillary Clinton used the time to trash talk the program and the roll out which had begun in November 2005.

During her roughly nine minute statement, Sen. Clinton became visibly aggravated. Near the end she says “I for one believe we should scrap this and start over.”

“We have taken taxpayer dollars by the billions and transferred it to the pharmaceutical companies and the insurance companies as a way to entice, even bribe, them to provide drug coverage to the poorest of the poor and the sickest of the sick. That is not in keeping with either our values or, frankly, what should be expected of high performance government.”
