Medicaid is lifeline for Arizona’s seniors and veterans

When you think of health care for seniors, you probably think of Medicare, but Medicaid is also vital to providing the care that older Arizonans in our community rely on. It helps cover high medical costs for those who have limited income and resources, as well as those living in nursing homes and relying on long-term care.

Dems’ agenda ignores needs of seniors

It's unfortunate that for Democrats, prescription drug reform isn't about making medicines more accessible. It's simply about financing ambitious progressive priorities – and sticking seniors with the bill.
