To The Daily Sun,
Thank you Governor Hassen,
As a retired state employee I was shocked to receive a letter from the state this past week. My cost for long-term (90 day) prescriptions has gone up 1,000 percent. You read that right, 1,000 percent. It seems the profligate spending by our governor is to be paid, at least in part, on the backs of retired employees. We often worked at substandard wages because of the benefits we received. I guess that is now much less true than in the past.
Our governor just can't stop spending our money, and when I called to complain about her outrageous spending I spoke to a condescending minion who, while overtly polite, could not keep his disdain out of his voice. He was just not interested in someone who wanted to rein in the free-spending activities of those we had elected.
So, thank you governor. My wife's prescriptions are many, and my costs will increase enormously. I just hope we can keep such as yourself from continuing in office.
