3. It was a plan to "humanize" GW a bit (like the AIDS in Africa assistance)
He had a lot of "hardwerk" to do, and all of it ugly as sin.. Those two "efforts" were to make him seem not quite so evil, and of course neither was funded properly (and they knew it going in), so they could do it.

It was also a way to "use" some of the surplus, and to put dems who voted against it, on the ropes when the next election rolled around..

Republicans are very good at this sort of thing. What a lot of people forget, is that during the run-up time between the suggestion of the bill and the implementation, the RX companies were free to raise prices like crazy, so that the "discounts" would still mean that they were making as much as or more than ever
