This iReport is part of an assignment:
What's your top issue?
We'd Die without Medicare. Don't let them cut it.
Thousands of Seniors today and future Seniors would
die without Mediare and no voucher system can
begin to replace it. I'm a 73 year old who barely survives
on Social Security, Medicare, and $20. week, food
stamps. Some very kind people have sent me
food, stamps, shampoo and soap or money to buy
them. This country is very generous. We need to be
helping Seniors not speeding up their demise. If we
need more money it should come from ending the
war in Afghanistan, taking the billionairs more,
and not paying oil companies and Wall Street.
I worked hard for years in federal health programs
that would lose funding and then I'd be looking
for another job. I started the first WIC nutrition
program that still feeds thousands of children,
to increase their brain power. I took care of my
parents and then was bedridden with strokes.
I'm better now, but I paid into Medicare, and I need
it. Vote for Senators and Representatives who respect
that. Oh, I don't drink, smoke, nor eat meat.
