We don’t think Stephen McNeil’s changes to Seniors Pharmacare are fair. Do you?
People who worked hard all their lives and planned for their retirement shouldn’t be penalized. Seniors receiving the Guaranteed Income Supplement should not have to pay so much as a dime for their Pharmacare Premiums. For the Liberals to try and raise revenues by making it more expensive for middle-income, and in some cases low-income seniors, to purchase prescription drugs is not a fair approach.
Stephen McNeil has used a lot of smoke and mirrors in announcing their changes to the Seniors’ Pharmacare program. The seniors impacted deserve a more thorough explanation. Stephen McNeil should be working to lower the cost for prescription drugs for all seniors, instead he’s creating a two-tiered system.
