Time to stop profiteering
Let’s see if I can get this straight: Social Security recipients will get a 1.7 percent increase for 2015 — about $20 per month. But Highmark is raising its rates, the price of pharmaceuticals is going up and hospitals are increasing rates.
The CEOs make millions while senior citizens risk losing everything: home, food, medicine, etc. You can’t get politicians or anyone else to help you.
What is the going price to kill off seniors? If you go to a pharmacy to get medicine instead of through mail order, you’re charged a higher price. Prices should be the same everywhere.
Highmark is a nonprofit outfit. Seven million dollars for its CEO is not my idea of nonprofit.
Highmark and the rest found out how to make more money and the politicians let them. They changed laws to let them. The old laws stopped this kind of stuff.
People don’t read the paper because it doesn’t tell truthfully what is going on. Things are hidden in the back of the paper and what Harrisburg is doing doesn’t get printed.
It’s time for the people to stand up and take back this state and country. By the 2020s or 2030s, we’ll all be back on the soup lines. No one will have anything, thanks to the politicians.
