Election Season: Understanding the Issues

Ann Bannes, Vice President of Home & Community Based Services

This year as we travel through election season, we need to take a moment to really understand the issues at hand before we vote.  For me, worried about the older population, I am interested in social security and medicare.

As we struggle to get our economic house in order as a nation, we need to be certain we are not ignoring the needs of the ever increasing older population – especially those at-risk with no limited financial resources.

Everyone should read and learn as much as they can about issues that are dear to them so when we go into that voting booth, we make an educated choice.   If you are also interested in medicare and social security check out the links below:
