To The Daily Sun,
I just got a notice from my health care provider that I now have to pay an additional monthly premium for a pediatric dental plan. The plan covers children till the age of 19. My youngest child is an adult. The insurance company said it doesn't make any difference if you don't have children. When my kids were growing up I spent thousands of my own dollars on their dental care, now the government is demanding I pay for the dental care of someone else's children.
The government has put insurance companies in charge of extracting money from those who have earned it to those who have not. What's to stop the government from telling insurance companies to collect a premium for some other type of coverage that doesn't apply to people in my age group? How about charging a premium for maternity benefits? Oh, right, we seniors already pay a premium for that.
To our N.H.-elected federal representatives: how about representing those who earn and pay the tax money that you so freely give away?
