|Well how does all the seniors like the deal that they struck for our meds? For my wife and I it will now cost 43.00 and 17.00 per month for 2 meds that were 6 bucks each last year. I guess whoever figured out the cola last year figured that would just enough to cover the extra charges for our meds. Oh yes I like how Obama is patting himself on the back for that cola raise when he had nothing to do with it. Vote for me and I will set you free, that came from a song called ball of confusion. I voted for this man, wow was I so wrong. A simple but very used generic drug called caraspoodol brand name soma is now not covered, cost for this is now 17.00 bucks, fyi at costco it is 16 bucks cash price. Morphine sulfate last year was 7 buck copay, this year its 43.00 Those that have gone through the donut hole knows what it feels like when you do not have the income to survive. The sad part is if you purchase the generic soma , the ins company can and does apply it towards your troop even though they paid nothing. As for the elections this year Mr Obama may be finding a new place to live if continues to say money for the insurance companies instead of us seniors. Good Luck to all of us... Robert in PHX AZ|

The Democrats want to preserve Social Security and the Republicans, like V.P. candidate Ryan want to privatize Social Security to which ever Special Interest Lobbyist sells him the best deal. The Democrats want to preserve Medicare and the Republicans, like V.P. candidate Ryan, want to turn it into a Voucher System.
The Republican Voucher Healthcare Plan, where you can fight over the phone for enough coverage to pay for your treatment with a Private Insurance Adjuster. If the Voucher wont cover your needed treatment, just go without the procedure or have it and file bankrupcy. Simple choice between just you and the Private Insurance Company adjuster.
Remember the Private Insurance Adjuster is hired to make the Company money first and foremost and not to provide the best care and treatment for you.
Independent Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders calls the Republican Voucher Healthcare Plan a " Death Sentence For Our Disabled Seniors And Children ". I've heard enough and say Preserve Medicare and Social Security.Response to Re: Obama and AARP Deal that will cost seniors even more, Tell me what you think???:
How do I know which candidate will actually help seniors on medicare?
