and to provide all medications to all on medicare including those of us on
ssdi and thus allowing us disabled more freedom of housing choices and an
out to enforced poverty to stay alive and an out to choosing heat or homes
over meds and health or to opt housing outta hospitals or nursing homes
and to make sure old people stay out of the nursing homes longer and can
lead healtheir lives longer and more independently and more cheaply on
fixed incomes is only 20 billion dollars or the cost of one spy-plane
built in newt gingrich's pastures what that the army says they don't need

why don't the governors insist that madicare pay for medications? doing so
would remove barriers to emigration to rural areas by a stable population
of people who spark economic rural growth and maintian the viability of
local hospitals, clinics, infrastructures, and small one-family housing
that are currently rotting in all states and suburban and rural
hinterlands devoid of strong hospital-union lobbyings.

if i could move outta nyc and keep access to my medications and also not
have poverty enforced in torder to afford my medications, i would gladly
move to the countryside and forsake my rent controlled or whatever highly
subsidized digs and let the yuppies fight the inner-city/urban/big-apple
rat-race and pressure cooker for me. and country doctors and small rural
hospitals and medical clinics could afford to service all people in the
counryside better adn provide jobs etc.

why are the governors so {*filter*}rdly and short-sighted? the old and frail
are better earners that one b-2 bomber!

what the federal govt would save with the pills given at home rather than
doled out in a nursing home or long-term or frequent hospital stay is way
worth it.

we are not useless eaters, but cash-cows, properly milked, but not

     The executive director of the National Priorities Project,
Speeter said: "The fact that we're looking at increasing the
Pentagon budget by $110 billion over the next five years, at a
time when it ought to be going down, is ridiculous. Our domestic
needs are increasing. We have a child poverty rate of 20.8
percent according to the Census Bureau. Drinking water systems
that serve more than 50 million Americans violate health
regulations and standards. The GAO says that 30 percent of our
schools are in need of extensive repairs. Over 40 million
Americans have no health insurance. We have a shortfall of 5
million low-income housing units. Forty-six percent of the jobs
with the most growth, like cashiers and waitresses, pay less than
half a livable wage." Speeter is author of the report "Are You
Winning or Losing? How Federal Choices Affect You and Your

MARK ZEPEZAUER, (520) 320-5105
     The author of "Take the Rich Off Welfare," Zepezauer said:
"We're doling out hundreds of billions of dollars every year to
huge corporations and wealthy individuals. The Overseas Private
Investment Corporation finances multinational corporations' risky
investments abroad, where the taxpayer guarantees their dealings,
so they get a bailout if things don't go well for them in the big
bad free market. The Agriculture Department is ponying up money
for McDonald's and Pillsbury to advertise their products
overseas. Other major beneficiaries of the budget include the
timber, ranching, mining and nuclear power industries."

MARILYN CLEMENT, (215) 563-7110, (215) 627-9077,

     The executive director of Women's International League for
Peace and Freedom, Clement said: "The military contractors are
desperate for more money to keep their profits soaring far into
the next century -- that's why we have these scares about the
supposed inferiority of U.S. weapons.... We don't need new attack
submarines costing $13 billion; the same amount would provide
health insurance for the 11 million uninsured kids in America.
Thirty-nine new F-22 fighter planes costing $7 billion would
allow 1.7 million children to benefit from Head Start."

WILLIAM HARTUNG, (212) 229-5808 ext. 106, (212) 678-2356,

     A senior fellow of the World Policy Institute at the New
School for Social Research and author of "The Military-Industrial
Complex Revisited," Hartung said: "Spending on military
procurement from now to 2005 will increase by 53 percent while
the boost in salaries and benefits for personnel is only 22
percent. Readiness and the troops are the bait, but the
administration is slipping the bulk of the funds to the military
contractors. This increase is not a response to threats in the
world, it's a response to perceived political threats to Clinton
and Gore. They have stolen yet another issue from the
