Connecticut seniors have a big decision on their hands in the upcoming November election.
Fourth District Congressman Jim Himes has talked the talk about representing us here in Connecticut, but his actions in down in D.C. have shown quite the opposite. In his support for the government takeover of healthcare, which surprisingly cuts close to $200 billion in funding to Medicare Advantage health plans, Himes has proven to senior citizens that their quality of care isn’t a priority.
These popular Medicare Advantage health plans, to which over 100,000 Connecticut seniors belong, are at risk of being gutted or eliminated because of the huge budget cuts to these programs in the big government health care law that Himes voted through. Our Congressmen and women promised improved quality of care at a much lower cost, but they have brought back the opposite, poorer quality healthcare at a higher cost.
Do you remember Nancy Pelosi’s statement a few years ago? She claimed Congress would have to pass the big government healthcare law-mandate for everyone to know what’s in it. Now that all the information is out there, the consequences of the healthcare law are clear; senior citizens in Connecticut are getting the short end of the stick. Now senior citizens have to ask themselves, “Should we vote Jim Himes for a 3rd term?” Seeing as he rushed through and supported such a destructive law to Connecticut’s seniors, I say absolutely not.
