Oh boy, socialist Obama is going to give we seniors a handout! We sure will take the $250.00 but if Obama and the Democrats think they can buy our support for their socialist government health care bill then they better think again. If there any blue dog democrats reading this I ask you to vote against the Obama health care reform bill and save America private health care which has worked fine over the years, just remember that Obama coat tail is getting shorter and harder for you to hang onto the next election, that same message goes for you Republicans. Leave our health care alone!
