​Unhappy with post office changes

We'd like to find out what's going on with the Cicero Post Office. It used to have boxes with the openings you could just pull up and throw your mail in. Then they took those off, and they had a couple boxes right along the same area. Well, now they've taken those off. Plus, there's no mailbox in front of the post office. If you come too early or you come after they're closed, you can't put your mail anywhere. There's no mailbox. What...is going on?

Don't trust caller ID

I have received several calls that came up on my caller ID as the name of my health insurance provider. The caller requested personal information from me. I immediately hung up and called the customer service phone number on my health insurance card. The representative of my provider checked out the number that had called me and reported to me that it was a scam call, and I was correct to not give out information. The names that come up on caller ID systems can be faked, so it is wise for you to be absolutely sure who you are talking to before giving out personal information.

Change Medicare regulations

Why won't President [Donald] Trump and Congress (especially [Ways & Means Health Subcommittee Chairman] Peter Roskam) change Medicare regulations to allow Medicare to negotiate with pharmaceutical companies for lower drug prices? This will save taxpayers and Medicare recipients numerous millions of dollars each year. Do they work for the American people, or do they work for large pharmaceutical companies and other lobbyists?

Voter ID does not discriminate

I am fully appalled that the idea of voter ID is discriminating. I have gotten a voter ID in the mail. First of all, it was free. Second of all, all the info needed [was given] at the voting facility. So, If this is discriminating, do I sue the government for isolating me? ... If the ignorant rule this issue, then I am being discriminated against. If free voter ID is acceptable, then the others can stop their claim of discrimination. So, I am looking to the masses. Is voter ID discriminatory? If it is, then I have cause to sue the Illinois government. If it is not, then the advocates need to back off and allow voter ID.
