Mahalo nui loa to our Mazie Hirono: I just received my "Ohana Advanced Care Card" (Obamacare). It includes full dental. (I haven't had teeth for 20 years.) Thanks.
I'm a retired person (former owner of Island Answering Service Inc.). I lost my business due to technology: the cellphone.
Please let all the senior citizens on fixed incomes know what Hirono did when she agreed with President Barack Obama and use the $400-plus billion to support all the kupuna. I can now get eyeglasses once a year (as my eyes grow dim). If I lose my hearing, my Ohana Care will pay for hearing aids - all at no cost to myself or any other of our kupuna on Medicare, and I get to pick my own doctors.
Bless you, Mazie.
I also have the option to go to the YMCA to assist with my exercise.
Do not let Linda Lingle (and the Republican Party on the Mainland) get away with the lie about Obamacare. My share of the Medicare Part B hasn't changed. Not one penny more out of my extremely low Income. No more HMOs denying me coverage because of my family history of heart attacks.
Thank you, Mazie Hirono, I can't remember what it was like to have teeth. Thanks for standing up for us against the Tea Party folk.
