DeLauro Fear Tour Comes to Milford

On Monday January 11, Representative Rosa DeLauro spoke to a group at the Milford Senior Center about health care. Unfortunately, it appears that her main purpose in coming was to try to scare senior citizens for political purposes. Even though she knows that there is no chance health care will be repealed, she went out of her way to make it seem like seniors could lose popular benefits like expanded access to preventative care.

DeLauro never mentioned that the benefits are financed in large part by a $500 billion cut to Medicare. Seniors already have a problem finding doctors willing to take Medicare patients because of low reimbursements and the new cuts will make the situation worse. If this trend continues, seniors will have only three options: see inexperienced doctors, see bad doctors or pay for health care out of their own pocket.

"Preventative"? Silly boy, you mean "preventive".

Get a dictionary.

Rob, also read the NH Register today and read a terrible story that Rosa Delauro's chief of staff is dead. The article mentions that she learned of this "car fire" at the senior center.

Do you have any clue on what happened?
