My name is Mae Yates, and in March I celebrated my 90th birthday.
I remember a time before Social Security and Medicare. As a child growing up in the Great Depression, I know first-hand how these programs changed the lives of millions of Americans for the better.
Romney and Ryan’s plan’s would raise the cost of healthcare for seniors by thousands of dollars every year, and for millions of Florida women like me, the costs would be even higher.
This isn’t only about my generation — I’m worried about the future for my children, my grandchildren, and my great-grandchildren. We must to act now to secure the future for them.
Thank you for standing with Florida Democrats to fight back against the extremism of the Republicans and protect the healthcare programs that millions of Floridians like myself rely on.
