Dold's survey of seniors slanted

Success - Article sent! close

I recently received a rather patronizing "seniors issues" survey from Congressman Robert Dold. One of the three questions asked if medical decisions should be made between doctors and patients and not a Washington bureaucrat. Dold failed to ask about an insurance company bureaucrat making medical decisions.

Actually I would rather have a government employee looking at my claim than someone working for a company that makes a profit by denying claims. Since all the questions were slanted to be answered one way only, I am forced to conclude that Congressman Dold doesn't really care what senior citizens think.
