Care for seniors should be priority over illegal aliens

Seniors should be outraged that some democratic congressmen have signed a letter of intent to allow illegal immigrants access to health care benefits, while at the same time cutting benefits in Medicare and senior advantage programs.

I cannot believe that the polls are only 33 percent in favor of the health care program being proposed while only 59 percent are against the program. It should be closer to 100 percent against the proposed health care program which is targeting seniors in their health care benefits and whom are legal U.S. citizens.

It’s time we speak out against this outrage targeting our senior citizens and let Congress know how we feel.
