Life for the Elderly in Bush’s America

This piece on Maine from the NYTIMES on how badly off many of our elderly are this winter, makes one wonder where are the two Republican US Senators, who vote with Bush on so many issues?Can’t they exert any influence on their “compassionate conservative” leader?

    Gosh, I thought the New Deal’s intent was to deal with the crushing problem of poverty among our oldest members of society (aren’t they also supposed to be the most respected?) We are sliding back at an alarming rate.

    “The country needs, and unless I mistake it’s temper, the country demands bold, persistent experimentation. It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But avove all, try something. The millions who are in want will not stand idly by silently forever while the things to satisfy their needs are within easy reach” FDR
