Here are the questions I submitted to Star Foster:
According to the US Census Bureau, in 2010 there were 14,935,000 (fourteen million
nine-hundred and thirty-five thousand) disabled Americans ages 18 and older (armed forces not included) living below the poverty level. Of course, many of these citizens are eligible or on Medicare. On his website, Johnson states he would “repeal […] failed Medicare prescription drug benefit.” If the prescription drug benefit were to be repealed, what plan does Johnson have to aid disabled Americans in obtaining life saving medications?
Johnson’s website also states that he wants to “Block grant Medicare and Medicaid funds to the states, allowing them to innovate, find efficiencies and provide better service at lower cost.” As governor of New Mexico, how did you reshape Medicaid without cutting services to citizens?
