Shake Hands on Rx Drugs for Medicare

I received a letter recently from an AARP member in Carrolton, Kentucky, who wrote: ?Medicare will not help seniors with medicine costs. My husband?s a diabetic, has had two heart surgeries and asthma since childhood. He is 68 years old. I am 65 and have congestive heart failure and a lung disease. We have to spend so much on medicine, we barely live?can?t go anywhere except to the doctors and grocery. Please help people like us.?
