Promotional materials used by the Bush Administration to sell the new prescription drug law to the public violated laws against using taxpayer money for propaganda, according to a General Accounting Office report issued today.


"I told you so," said Institute for America's Future Co- director Roger Hickey. "The new Bush Medicare law funnels money into the pockets of big drug companies and HMOs. It doesn't help seniors. The White House is breaking the law and bending the truth to sell this thing."


Tens of thousands of people organized by the Institute for America's Future and TomPaine.com demanded that Congress take back the money the Bush Administration funneled to HMOs in the new prescription drug law. President Bush's new Medicare law gives HMOs $46 billion -- 3 times the amount the Bush Administration promised.
