Perhaps U.S. Sens. Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy don’t respect the “child” we have in the White House who only cares about the wealthy people in this country. I know Pres. Trump knows how to write his name when he signs a bill. He doesn’t have to hold it up to show us. If his health care bill passes I wonder if he’ll pay my mother’s nursing home bill?

I received a call about three weeks ago telling me I had won a sweepstakes of $700,000. I hung up. Two weeks ago, they called back and this time I listened to the whole spiel. My check had been delivered to the wrong address. They could get it to me in about two days. I received the tracking number: ASN8552GA. All I had to do was call a number in Florida with my information. There was a small fee of $1,225. I was then given a number to call back after I called Florida. Of course, I never called Florida.

I’m glad my mother raised me to be a “Doubting Thomasina.” If it sounds too good to be true, it is too good to be true. I haven’t heard from them again. I just hope other senior citizens don’t get caught up in this scam.
