"This abuse of our residents by the drug manufacturers and HMOs has to stop NOW!"
With 40% of the population in District 30 aged 55 or older, Maria understands that affordable health care isn't a luxury, its an absolute necessity. The recent health care bill will provide immediate benefits to her constituents and to the residents of the greater Palm Beach and Broward county area, but even more can be done by the state of Florida.
Maria's priority will be to support further health care reform for the state, so long as any future law does not jeopardize Medicare guarantees to seniors. Too many of our veterans and senior citizens are burdened by the doughnot hole in their Medicare coverage that forces them to pay hefty prices for prescription drugs. Maria will do everything in her power to ensure that Medicare coverage is not only enhanced but better supported, so that our seniors receive the care that they deserve.
