This letter is a response to the medical deduction whitewash of what seniors do not remember about their tax forms by Lee Roberts, the state budget director. Were Roberts remarks’ directed to legislators or to us dumb folks, who are affected by the new law deleting the carryover of medical expenses from our Federal 1040? Roberts’ comments are not deserving of a detailed response. However, perhaps I should say I’ll overcome this disparity by using my “old” picture ID for the first time ever to vote next year.
