I am a resident of North Carolina’s 10th District and will be a new Medicare recipient in May of 2012. That makes me very supportive of the Medicare guarantee. Without it, I’m not sure that I’d be able to afford health care. I am not a wealthy individual; therefore, I need all the help I can get to maintain a healthy existence.
Politicians who put themselves and wealthy companies ahead of average and poor Americans sicken me. People like Sen. Patrick McHenry could never convince me that I should vote for them because they don’t have my best interest at heart.
I have paid into Medicare all of my working life. Privatizing or changing the way Social Security and Medicare are dispensed will take away many of the present benefits seniors now depend on. We’ve paid for and deserve the protection Medicare was designed to give. Protecting tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires can never be the right thing to do.
Terry Bellamy is a politician who speaks up for the people. She will fight for Medicare and other programs that are designed to help seniors. She will not let seniors again pay the price while millionaires are protected.
