Alliance for Retired Americans Statement on Jeb Bush’s Plan to Gut Medicare

Washington, DC—(ENEWSPF)—July 24, 2015. The following statement was issued by Jane Lang, Vice President of the New Hampshire Alliance for Retired Americans, regarding Jeb Bush’s plan to gut Medicare

“Jeb Bush has declared war on seniors.

“By going after their earned Medicare benefits, he is putting our health and economic well-being at risk.

“Medicare was created 50 years ago this month to ensure that older Americans, who are most in need of health care services, would not have to choose between a hospital stay and keeping a roof over their head.

“Since then, all Americans have contributed to Medicare with the assumption that it would be there for them when they reached retirement age.

“We will fight against any attempt to take away our earned health care benefits and make sure that older Americans know who is on our side, and who is not.”
