| No Al, $10./$35. co-pay for meds and $10. co-pay for Dr visits.. This past
| April it went from $750. a month to $1075. a month for my wife and I, Also
| have to pay 3 months in advance.. Who knows what next April will bring..
The
| system sucks.. Maybe we  can all go move in with Ed, in Canada... and I'll
| even bring his print back...(:-)
