Seniors beware

Under President Barack Obama’s proposed budget and executive orders, seniors and any living on fixed incomes will be economically punished and potentially forced out of their homes and into a life of restricted health care and poverty.

The tax increases — both direct and indirect — plus higher costs for food, energy, clothing, health care and everything we buy, will reduce the purchasing power of seniors.

Couple this with the dramatic drop in real estate and 401(k) values, and hard working American seniors will see their life being marginalized.

Where are the AARP and other senior advocate groups?
