Sen. Jon Erpenbach: Obama extends state's SeniorCare
Placeholder Image
The recently announced extension of Wisconsin's SeniorCare program is great news for our senior citizens. This wildly popular program saves older adults in Wisconsin on prescription drugs and is widely regarded as a much stronger than the Federal Medicare Part D program that was set to replace it at the end of this year barring the federal action. Last year the Bush administration refused the extension of SeniorCare, but the new Obama administration granted a three-year extension to carry the program through 2012.
