"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

CNN.com - Democrats: Medicare drug�plan confusing seniors - Mar 25, 2006: "'Every American deserves the best health care we can provide. We do not have to accept a failed benefit and we do not have to tolerate a culture of corruption or leaders who are afraid to admit their mistakes. Democrats have the answer, and under a Democratic Congress, we will give seniors the prescription drug benefit they were promised years ago. Together we can do better,' Berry said."

It comes down to the above quote.

I have nothing against people having more time to enroll in the program, nor do I think this is the greatest plan put together, though honestly I do not know much about it as its use doesn't apply to me.

I certainly won't speak for those that have had difficulty, but it so often seems that the first reaction is to complain and then do nothing about it.

The media could help by, rather than just reporting about it, do some pieces that assist and explain the various pieces. That though would entail their understanding a topic of which they speak/report and that isn't going to happen anytime soon. 24/7 cycle.
