Letter: Gouged like an ice pick in the ear

One thing that really upsets me are these companies that use someone’s misfortune to gouge the daylights out of people. I am talking about the hearing aid manufacturers.

Some of these hearing aids cost thousands of dollars. There are people I know who have a son that was born with hearing problem. This young boy wears two hearing aids that cost $10,000 each. If that isn’t highway robbery, I don’t know what is.

As far as I am concerned, there should be a law against this kind of thievery.

I wear two hearing aids, and I am having to get new ones. Mine will cost $900 each.

This is a nice chunk of change when you are on a fixed income.
