Saving with Smoke and Mirrors

Inefficient, wasteful health care made better with smoke and mirrors.....
"The Obama White House cannot explain more than half of today's announced $80 billion in prescription drug savings.

A senior official said the White House estimates $30 billion in savings will be achieved through drug companies reducing by at least 50 percent the cost of brand-name prescription drugs for Medicare beneficiaries who fall into the so-called coverage "donut hole."

The other $50 billion in savings will come from unspecified and unknown changes to drug costs linked to Medicare and Medicaid."
The more things change.........the worse they get.
