Election Day is Tuesday, November 6, and it is a time for all registered voters to do our civic duty and vote.
There are many issues out there that demand our concern and attention, especially for senior citizens like myself, who worry about our benefits being reduced.
According to the AARP, Social Security will fall short in 2034 and benefits will drop by 20 percent. Also, prescriptions drug costs are increasing at a rate faster than inflation. Added to all that, the Medicare trust fund will fall short by 2026.
That is why I call upon seniors to get out and vote for those candidates who will work hard on these senior citizen issues. So get your walkers, canes and wheel chairs and vote. Let our elected officials know that we are an important voting block.
