I thought the republicans were blaming the democrats?? Medicare Part D was the creation of Eric Cantor, John Boehner, Mitch McConnell etc. Bush was President, and the Democrats opposed it. It was a windfall for Pharmaceutical companies, and was completely unfunded. It has added 9.4 trillion to the deficit.
