I just saw on the news last night that someone just like this was in Augusta and did the same thing.

I was laid off this month from a healthcare job because the company was downsizing; partly due to Medicare cuts that will take effect very soon. And for another matter, I’d love to go back to the “collapsed” economy of the last administration when unemployment was under 6%, gas was 2 dollars and healthcare jobs had a future.
