"My normal run was... I was paying about $140 a month, which is now seven dollars a month. Yeah hear that. $140 dollars a month now he's paying seven dollars a month. Here's a guy, he may not be computer literate, but he's smart enough to call and ask advice for a program that's saving him a lot of money."

President Bush says 29 million people have already signed up, and there are seven million more people still elligable for the new Medicare plan.

From the state Capitol, I'm Dan Frumson.
