Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - September 10, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Elderly Status Top Priority; Culver Claims SPIRIT LAKE - Legislation lo improve conditions for senior citizens was outlined in a series of campaign appearances by Congressman John Culver that started here Tuesday morning and moved to Ocheyedan, Sheldon. Larchwood, Hawarden and Sioux City. Culver, Democratic candidate for U.S. senator, called the status of the elderly “a No. I social priority” and proposed legislation he said he had previously endorsed. Tax reform to relieve senior citizens of the income squeeze those on fixed income find themselves in must come, Culver said. He said the elderly should get a definite percentage of federal funds for moderate and low-income housing, transportation, meals, recreation and crime prevention. “For 70 percent of the elderly who own their own homes,” Culver said, “the most pressing expense is the property tax.” He proposed a federal system of revenue sharing incentives to reduce this burden and also called for improved health care. Culver said it is clear “we must amend Medicare to cover prescription drugs, long-term hospitalization and preventive care.” He also called for adoption of home health care legislation now pending and reiterated the need to induce doctors and nurses to practice in rural counties where many senior citizens live.
