It was announced this week that there would be a reduction of senior benefits. First of all, these people are already living well below the poverty level — that’s why we have these benefits. Most will maybe get $20 in food stamps, if that, for their $75 dollars, and that’s a big maybe. Many had low-paying service positions most of their lives and raised families on limited incomes. Now, when they are at an age when health issues arise on almost a daily basis, they have to deal with a reduction in their small living allowances. What were you ladies and gentlemen of the Legislature thinking?
