Once again, Seniors Coalition members and supporters have accepted the challenge and are ready to fight tooth and nail to protect Social Security and Medicare from an administration that seems dead-set on its continual attacks on Social Security and Medicare. This year’s Senior Citizens Census proves without a doubt that our members and supporters are sick and tired of being treated like second class citizens and are willing to engage in the fight of a lifetime.
“Our President has been unabashed in his rhetoric aimed at scaring senior citizens,” stated President and CEO Joseph Bridges. “The fact that he would actually go on national television and state, “I can't guarantee that those checks go out on August 3rd if we haven't resolved this issue” is not only a blatant scare tactic, but unbelievably counterproductive,” continued Bridges. “What we need in this country is leadership, not fear mongering to achieve your selfish spending binges at the expense of senior citizens.”
The Seniors Coalition wants to thank all that participated in this year’s Senior Citizens Census. Your continued participation and support are critical in our battle to protect the benefits you were promised for a lifetime of hard work. Thank You!
