In 2003, President Bush and Congress created the Medicare Part D drug plan which began in 2006. This added trillions of dollars to the Medicare budget without any way to pay for it. Republicans are supposed to be the party of fiscal responsibility and yet they cut taxes while we were fighting two wars and added a billion dollar budget buster to Medicare. I wonder why?
The Comptroller General of the United States under George Bush spoke to Sixty Minutes in 2009.
