And While I Am Talking About Smaller Government

This quote from another Washington Post article struck me as well:

Medicare chief Mark B. McClellan said the new drug package would cost $534
billion over 10 years. Last night, he acknowledged that the cumulative cost
of the program between 2006 and 2015 will reach $1.2 trillion, but he cited
several major savings and offsets that he said will reduce the federal
government's bottom-line cost to $720 billion.

Yeah, Democrats must be looking better and better to those Libertarians. At least they know they won't be lied to.
