Senators Olympia Snowe and Tom Harkins have introduced S.905. This piece of legislation provides a tax credit of up to $500 per hearing aid, every 5 years. There are 6 other Senators who are the original co-sponsors of this piece of legislation.
Personally, I find it insulting. A tax credit of $500? When was the last time any of these Senators purchased a hearing aid? Do they have any idea of the cost? Shame on the U.S. Senators for not bringing forth a better piece of legislation that affects 36 million Americans.
If you believe that we should get a better piece of legislation than S. 905, than write your State Senators NOW.
