Trump win means no more constraints
First, Trump is immoral.
There were at least two dozen women who have made sexual accusations against Trump. Then there was a payment to Stormy Daniels from Trump’s personal lawyer.
Secondly, he is a frequent liar. The one lie that stands out is “no quid pro quo”. When it came out that Trump wanted dirt on Biden, Trump released the aid to Ukraine the next day.
Lastly, he is narcissistic who only thinks about himself. This is obvious by his own words and all the people who have made this point.
The most important point that voters must realize is that if Trump wins, he will not need or want anyone’s vote ever again. He cannot run for president again.
He will be free to reward his wealthy contacts and himself with impunity. Trump and the Republicans will be free to privatize Social Security and Medicare. Privatizing will mean taking a percentage of the money off the top as profit.
This will translate to less benefits and more expensive health care for the elderly.
Trump has already begun his plan by suspending the Social Security and Medicare payments until the end of the year, making these programs weaker.
A reminder to get screened for cancer
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and, as the educator for the Cancer Services Program (CSP) of Fulton, Montgomery and Schenectady Counties, I would like to urge your readers to get their mammograms.
Regular cancer screenings can help find cancer early when treatment may be easier. And now that COVID-19 infection rates in New York state are low, it is time to talk to your doctor about missed preventive care.
Some women may have lost their jobs and their health insurance because of the pandemic. So how can these women get cancer screening? This is where the Cancer Services Program (CSP) of Fulton, Montgomery and Schenectady Counties can help.
The CSP offers free breast cancer screenings to uninsured women ages 40 and over. The program also offers free cervical cancer screening to women ages 40 and older, and free colon cancer screenings to uninsured men and women ages 50 and over.
If any follow-up tests are needed, the CSP will provide those tests too. If breast, cervical, or colon cancer is found, our program will help enroll people who are eligible in the New York State Medicaid Cancer Treatment Program for full Medicaid coverage during treatment.
Call the CSP at 518-770-6816 to find out if you’re eligible for the program or to get more information.
