most people don't know about it or don't know how to apply for it or are not comfortable or capable of applying."
It appears that most people just want to show up at the doctor's office, hospital, or pharmacy whenever they feel like it, get some service or prescription at little or no cost to them, and be on their merry way. Say what you will about whether or not the program is the right one in the first place, but there are just too many ways to find out about these benefits NOT to do something about it.

Sounds normal, I'm with them.

Agreed. For the past six months AT LEAST, you can't turn on the tv or radio without hearing about the drug plan. Then, when January 1 rolled around, the seniors (supposedly) and the politicians whined about not knowing anything about it.
Here in California, Arnold designated 15 million to help out until things got sorted out. Seniors were complaining every which way according to the news. I don't like it that we even HAVE this program, but its here and there is no reason why people should be confused.
I did the research, signed my mother up for a plan...her drugs are waaaaaya cheaper (thanks to the taxpayers) and we also have coverage after the 2250 is reached.

No, this program is too complicated to be understood. It is as bad or worse than tax code.
