    No Medicare Tax Action Center (Anaheim, CA) an arm of ygnetwork.org (Conservative non-profit political action) has sent mass mailing to people on Social Sercurity with headlines “Higher Costs, Fewer Choises for Seniors if the Hidden Medicare Drug ‘Tax’ Becomes Law!”. The purpose of the ammendment to title XVIII of the Social Security Act is to require drug manufacturers to provide drug rebates for drugs dispensed to low-income individuals under the Medicare Rx drug benefit program. It is a cost to the drug manufacturers – NOT those on Medicare which the mailing implies – the mailing is to oppose the legislation [protect the bottom line of drug manufacturers]. The spin being used is “Keep the government’s hands off my Medicare drug benefits!” which should in honesty be "Keep drug manufacturing profits at the all-time highs and let low income people [which includes many of those targeted by the false mailing] keep treading water or drown. A most dispicable mailings ever !
