Support Disabled & Elderly State Retirees
HELP US Repeal the Law that Eliminated Their Prescription Drug Coverage
Capital punishment is a government-sanctioned practice whereby a person is killed by the state as a punishment for a crime. Welcome to Maryland. In Maryland, you do not have to kill someone to get the Death Penalty. No. To qualify for the Maryland Death Penalty all you have to do is (1) work for the State; (2) retire disabled; or (3) retire and turn 65. The Maryland General Assembly and the Governor sentenced State retirees to death when they eliminated the prescription drug coverage program that was earned and paid for by State Retirees during their working years.
The Program at issue covers State retirees who retired disabled or became 65 or older. So right when age or disability makes availability of prescription medications a necessity, State retirees are rationing their medicine, selling their homes, slashing expenses to the bone to save enough money to buy medications if the prescription program is not reinstated.
These State retirees were specifically targeted because Maryland lawmakers want to save money on pension payouts. Maryland lawmakers see these retirees as a drag on society and helping them live longer will gain the State nothing. Maryland lawmakers have rationalized that money earmarked for prescription drug coverage can be put to better use even though disabled and elderly State retirees were promised these benefits and paid for these benefits over decades of service.
