18-29 years old, according toexit polling. In Ohio, youngvoters went more heavilyDemocratic than in any electionsince at least 1992.But there are questionsabout whether young peopleare enthusiastic this time aroundand will turn out for Obama likethey did in 2008.Josh Prest, a 21-year-oldpolitical science major and for-mer head of college Republicansat Youngstown State University,said he saw more political inten-sity two years ago during theOhio governor’s race.Why? “I don’t think any-one’s happy with either of thetwo candidates,” he said. “Iknow I’m not.”At the College of Woostersouth of Cleveland, DanielCohen, 20, said the mood isstarting to change as the cam-paign heats up. Cohen, presi-dent of the college Democrats,said the Obama campaign hasemphasized voter registrationon campus.“Obviously that demograph-ic wins for them last time, soit probably is more likely towin for them this time,” Cohensaid.Michael Zickar, chairmanof both the psychology depart-ment at Bowling Green StateUniversity and the Wood CountyDemocratic Party, acknowl-edged that there was little excite-ment for Obama on campus upuntil the last few months.
(Continued from page 1)continue to encourage seniorsto shop around and find theplan that works best for them,”he said.Medicare’s open enrollmentseason starts Oct. 15, and bene-ficiaries have a wide variety of choices of taxpayer-subsidizedprivate prescription plans.Seniors and family memberscan use the online MedicarePlan Finder to input individualprescription lists and find plansin their area that cover them.About 90 percent of Medicare’s nearly 50 millionbeneficiaries have some formof drug coverage, with morethan 17 million enrolled inprivate plans through the pre-scription drug program.President Barack Obama’s2010 health care law is improv-ing prescription drug plans bygradually closing the coveragegap known as the doughnuthole for those with high pre-scription drug costs.The Avalare numbers didhave one silver lining for theObama administration. Whenthe projections are tweaked toaccount for seniors switchingto lower-cost coverage, pre-miums for 2013 are likely toremain steady.Separately, the adminis-tration recently announcedthat average premiums forMedicare Advantage insur-ance plans will barely inch upnext year on average, whileenrollment in the private medi-cal plans will continue to rise.Many Medicare Advantageplans also combine prescrip-tion drug coverage in onepackage deal.But the biggest premiumannouncement is yet to come.Virtually all seniors pay the PartB premium for outpatient care,including those with traditionalMedicare as well as those inprivate plans. Currently $99.90a month, the Part B premium itis expected to rise next year byless than $10.
