Irregular Times contrasts the current state of the union with the promises made last year. You can predict how this one sorted out:

Bush 2005 Reality: Bush’s 2006 budget incorporates an increase in out-of-pocket Medicare expenses for poor people, a reduction in Medicare eligibility, elimination of old people from nursing programs.
