group home for elderly

Serving Illinois and Wisconsin

Just got my Sept/Oct 08 edition of the AARP magazine. I immediately opened to page 93 where they have their 2008 AARP Voter's Guide. They concluded that Obama's policies were better suited to help seniors.Every night I have been watching the DNC. Never have I been this excited and motivated to vote for president. So I wanted to see which candidate was going stand up the most for seniors.I also went to each candidates site to try to find where they stood on seniors issues. On Obama's website it was easy to find and even included a version that you could download and pass out. On McCain's site (once I weeded through the first page of negativity and fear) I was hard pressed to find information specifically on seniors. I had to search under health care and the sanctity of life... no real big issues made toward seniors. Which is odd considering he is one. But then again he has 7 homes so I don't think he is worried about he and his wife are going to pay for long term care.(To be fair, I don't think the Obama's will either) - but the rest of us WILL! So lets educate ourselves! In all these speeches they talk about thinking about our children's future when making this vote. But I am thinking about my parents future and my future as well.(photo by Leo Henton)
