Regarding the recent story about the new EEOC regulation that allows employers to reduce or eliminate retiree health benefits: What do they think we worked all those years for?
We stayed with those companies 35 and 40 years for the salary and the health benefits we were promised in our retirement. We didn’t want to rely on the government for our health care because we know how that works.
I don’t see the politicians reducing or eliminating their health care.
This is more money to pay some CEO a few more million or put a few more dollars in some politician’s pocket.
Then they wonder why people want change and don’t trust our elected officials any more.
My 80-year-old mother lives on less than $1,300 a month. She got a $38 increase in her Social Security, but with her increase in her supplemental insurances and other pre-pay she’s more than $100 in the hole. I agree with a previous letter writer: The winners are big business, the rich and I’m adding the politicians.
