Either Mr. Spitzer's advisors are outrageously misinformed or else they don't give a damn about the elderly or infirmed. My parents, who are of modest means, are struggling with the health care system's issues at this very moment. My father has stage 4 prostate cancer and is in congestive heart failure. My mother is elderly and is suffering from all sorts of serious health issues. They can't afford a Nursing Home and need more than a nurse to come in 1 hour once a week. If Mr. Spitzer goes along with this insane plan I will hold him directly responsible for abandoning people who, at this time in their lives, need HELP and not the bum's rush. THIS IS AN OUTRAGE!
Sincerely pissed off,

I support your cause. Our elderly parents should be treated as treasures and society's priorities.
Thus, there is no more critical use of resources than to devote them to the honor and care of our
seniors. How would Mr. Spitzer treat this matter if his parents were in a similar situation? Perhaps a national referendum on this matter should be proposed to our Congress. Please contact me to explore options.(P.S. Give my best to Helen and Paul. Happy Birthday Carol 6/2 -your ex. My email is [email protected] )

FYI: I'm not from, nor do I live in Astoria, NY.

Thank you to those who tried to help.
It looks like local governments and the Federal government believe that after a certain age, we should be culled from the population.
