Promises Made, Promises Kept
ALLENTOWN, PENN. – The 60 Plus Association, nationally recognized as the conservative alternative to the liberal AARP, today launched a new radio ad in Pennsylvania’s 11th Congressional District, thanking Rep. Lou Barletta for protecting Medicare during the recent budget debates.
“Rep. Lou Barletta proved he is different from many in Washington,” said Jim Martin, Chairman of the 60 Plus Association. “Rep. Barletta did what he promised he would do: protect Medicare for Pennsylvania’s seniors. He voted for the House budget proposal, which strengthens and preserves Medicare, and in doing so, helped ensure the program would be available for current and future seniors. On behalf of the 60 Plus Association, I would like to thank Rep. Barletta for standing up for Pennsylvania seniors and protecting Medicare – just like he promised he would.”
The one-minute radio ad will begin airing on April 21. The organization has also launched a direct mail campaign this week across the district.[audio:https://www.60plus.org/files/SPA-11-R-04-Protect-Barletta.mp3|titles=Lou Barletta protects Medicare]
– TRANSCRIPT –
Something unusual happened last week…in Washington, DC of all places.
Elected officials actually did what they said they would.
The House passed a budget that protects and preserves Medicare for years to come.
And our Congressman, Lou Barletta, voted to protect Medicare and keep it secure for future retirees.
Our national debt is $14 trillion…America is literally spending money we don’t have and future generations won’t be able to afford.
With 10,000 Baby Boomers reaching retirement age every day, important programs like Medicare are being crushed – and could collapse if we don’t act to strengthen and improve them.
No changes for seniors on Medicare now or those who will soon go on it.
Control costs by targeting waste, fraud and abuse – so current and future seniors receive the quality care they have earned.
Call Lou Barletta at (570) 751-0050. Thank him for voting to protect Medicare and tell him to continue keeping his promise to seniors.
Paid for by the 60 Plus Association.
