"Red Grandmothers" to Receive Free Dentures

alternate title: Capitalist Grandmothers to Steal from "Red Grandmothers"

The Sofia Weekly: The socialist party is preparing to offer free dentures to Bulgarian retirees. This initiative comes almost immediately after the decision to raise retirement pensions with 10,35% instead of the planned 9,5% made this past weekend at the Governing Coalition's meeting in Katarino. The increase of the pensions has been widely criticized in the media since many see it as another "red" attempt to buy the retirees' future vote. At the moment the National Health Insurance Fund sets aside 4% of its total budget for dental care.
