Medical madness

This month has been insanity for senior citizens, caused by the miserable malfunction – or, rather, nonfunction – of our health care system. Huge numbers of us do not know who is “covering” what of our medical and prescription costs. It is literally impossible to get answers from pharmacists, health insurance companies or Medicare. When will we have reliable information, and from whom?

For those who find huge increases in their prescription prices and cannot pay, are we being asked to drop dead to accommodate the system?

On Feb. 1 at 2 p.m. there will be speakers at the Community Center regarding this madness. Let us pray they know what they are talking about.
