Your right Tammy! Now is the time to asak questions and demand answers,the ball is virtually in our court at this point.
I want to know what their stand on healthcare is. I want to know why SS got one of the lowest cost of living raises last year then it has had in 5. That little bit of money they gave me didnt even cover the raise in medicare premiums last year not to mention the cost of gas and food became astronomical and they didnt give us enough to buy one gallon of gas or one gallon of milk and all of these things have continued to rise in cost during the year. Not only did my premium go up but my co-pays on my supplemental went up as well,as a matter of fact twice to the point that with all of the drug stores competing in the $4 programs my co-pay on meds is now $1.58 more then that? Throw in the fact that they changed the meaning of "pcp" that now my office co-pay is $10 versus $5 because he is a Internal medicine Doc that qualifies him as a specialist even though he is listed on the card as my Primary care Doc.
I want to know what those in office are going to do about
the rising cost of gasoline and food. Most of us cant or dont have the option of public transportation for some walking to a bus stop and standing waiting for an hour is just not possible not to mention at least here in this city so many routes have been cut out and eliminated due to the ever rising cost of fuel that if you can even get close to your destination your doing good.
I want to know why when the cost of food has become ridiculous that the food stamp program has not changed it's qualifying guidelines in 10 years,the same for medicaid on most states. The cost of living raises are still in the increase implemented several years agoa nd have not reached peak from that yet and already it is almost equal to a gallon of gas? How are these folks going to get to work and buy food when at least 2 of their hours of work are going to be used to buy gas to get there? And that is if they are lucky enough to live within 5 miles of where they work.
Why are we still in a war not benefitting anyone it seems? Think maybe it is time to rethink that one? How much money a year is being spent on that war?
There are so so many questions that need answers and far to few folks willing to ask them. I like you are asking. It is not going to guarentee I will get the right answers or the truthful answers out of anyone but I am going to ask all the same.
At least I can eliminate those with the wrong answers right off.
