To the Editor: Alzheimer’s is not a Republican or Democratic issue — it affects everyone. That’s why I was so encouraged when Congress passed on an unanimous bipartisan basis, the National Alzheimer’s Project Act (NAPA) which spurred the creation of the first National Alzheimer’s Plan for America.

To the Editor: America’s on a drug trip but is in denial. While America has 5 percent of the world’s population, it uses 50 percent of prescription drugs and pays the most for them — at massive taxpayer expense.
