You wouldn't have gotten it if you hadn't sent the proper forms and supporting documents to prove your hardship to get approval to be exempt from your property taxes. That is what is wrong with the existing law, the process to get the exemption was overwhelming.The ballot changes that to the county to decide whether or not to exempt you.You state that there is already a law in Virginia dealing with tax exemptions for the disabled and elderly. I am here to state that law is left to the counties to choose if they want to enforce it. Ha in Nottoway county only a very few get the exemptions. I know for a fact and I have a disabled husband the it was never given to us. Do you know how much it costs for a handicapped accesible vehicle? More than you would think. Now we get back to the issue of health care, how are you going to recieve it on a fixed income?
As for your other question about health care- at the rate all the insurance companies have been announcing rate increases- you won't. They fully intend to profit as much as they can, that's why they are announcing that it is not the group plans, but the individual plans that like seniors, who can't get in under a group plan....Unless--- This is why AARP was all for it. They also were looking at the $$$$$ they would make over the new members, and their cut of the group plan they offer. Luck to you and us all, pray it is repealed.
