Letter: Seniors, demand politicians help out about drug costs

Why is it that no politician tries to get the senior vote? Do we not count?

The last time I heard anything involving seniors was when the drug companies were asked why their prices for drugs were so high. They replied that they, the company, needed the money to develop new drugs.

Why should we pay for the development of new drugs when we pay for development two times more for “development” already?

It is about time that seniors get a true discount on drugs. Let’s use our votes for someone who knows that seniors do count. They have been neglected for too long a time!
