P. Caron: Fight for the elderly

by Phyllis Caron

Default

  • It seems like we have been here before. Doesn't anyone want to fight for the elderly?

    Doesn't Gov. Paul LePage have parents or any family on Medicaid?

    I read how a 90-year-old woman had to choose between her medications and a place to live. She chose her medications.

    It is ironic how some people help while others take away. For example, Stephen King gives away thousands of dollars so people who cannot afford to get oil delivered will be able to stay warm.

    I offer my thanks to Mr. King. But Gov. LePage is making life much more difficult for the elderly, most of whom worked all their lives so that they would be able to retire without worrying.

    Why should people save all their lives when LePage can take it all away?

    Phyllis M. Caron, Lewiston
