To the Editor:
The election is coming up in just days now, and I am urging your support for Barbara Comstock, since we are very fortunate to have such a strong and capable Congresswoman representing our district. She is especially strong as an advocate for retirees and senior citizens and has been a strong defender of Medicare. She voted to permanently fix the "sustainable growth rate" that has undermined the program for years.
Comstock has also supported a two billion increase in important research spending, which helps researchers in the fight against Alzheimer's disease. She and her colleagues in Congress were able to postpone a proposed tax on important medical devices like pacemakers, artificial joints, and diagnostic scanners like MRI machines. She also helped pass the Reauthorization of the Older Americans Act, which provides assistance to state and area agencies on aging and related model programs.
As Congresswoman, Barbara Comstock is working to protect and preserve Social Security.
