From the Boston Herald:
Kennedy to unveil prescription drug bill alternative
Just hours after President Bush signed the landmark prescription drug bill into law on Monday, Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., was ready with his legislative response - a bill that would repeal many of the key aspects of the new law.

The measure, which will face an uphill battle, would limit payouts to the private insurance plans to amounts that reflect Medicare's cost, allow drug reimportation from Canada, and eliminate a limited experimental program that sets up direct competition between traditional Medicare and new private managed care plans.
