Saskatchewan Party Reeling After NDP Drug Plan Announcement

"... 24 hours after calling the election for Nov. 7, Premier Lorne Calvert dropped his bombshell announcement that another NDP government would extend the seniors' $15 prescription drug plan to everyone. [...] Clearly, the NDP seized the momentum in 2007 election campaign Thursday. [...]
And there are a lot of other nagging questions. Why should we be paying for drugs for millionaires? "

Caught completely off guard, the Saskatchewan Party and their sympathizers are reeling in the wake of a universal prescription drug plan revealed by the NDP at the start of this election campaign. In fact the best counter they can come up with is that it will provide 'free drugs for millionaires?'

The right wing in Saskatchewan is going to have to come up with a better argument than that! Those who have been advocating that is time for a change (and I include those in the media who lead that parade) just got a punch in the nose on day one of the campaign!

UPDATE: A spooked Sask Party says ... 'We have a drug plan too'!
Talk about desperation ... overnight, the Sask Party has patched together a Prescription Drug Plan of their own!

Ughh..once again, Canadian politics has descended into a pissing contest over who can blow the most money.

You know what Phil ..... if Bernard Lord had done a little more for the people ... he might still be premier!

I never cared for Lord...elitist, aloof...Graham, hes a nice fella, buys his own groceries if u know what I mean, hangs out at the pub I work at. Still, terrible policies. But you can talk to him.

EDIT: spelling.
