Lori Parham the State Director for AARP Maine was in for our Senior Spotlight segment to inform us about how Gov. Lepage’s budget completely eliminates the Low Cost Drugs for the Elderly and Disabled Program. If this program is eliminated 80,000 low income seniors over the age of 62 and people with disabilities will lose the help they need. Lori also told us about how the Governor’s budget would cut Maine’s Medicare Savings Program. If this program is cut 40,000 low-income seniors and people with disabilities will lose this program.To get your voice out there to stop these cuts to the elderly and disabled you can call your senators at 1-800-423-6900 or call your representatives at 1-800-423-2900.
