LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Price hikes take toll on people with fixed incomes

Letter to the editor:

This letter is to let the American people know the problems that people on fixed incomes face. I’m sure I have plenty of company. It seems like everytime we turn around someone is raising the price of something such as gasoline, food, services etc. Now mind you in some cases people can keep up such as dipping into savings etc. But what about the elderly and the disabled with no way to supplement their income. Such is our plight. We make to much money to receive any help and not enough to survive.

Now mind you there are places to help with some food, but there are restrictions there to.

So I ask all people in this situation to come forth and mandate our government to revise the laws so the poor people have a chance. Let’s worry about our own people for once!!!

Walter Williams
