Promises Made, Promises Kept
SYRACUSE, N.Y. – The 60 Plus Association, nationally recognized as the conservative alternative to the liberal AARP, today launched a new radio ad in New York’s 25th Congressional District, thanking Rep. Ann Marie Buerkle for protecting Medicare during the recent budget debates.
“Rep. Ann Marie Buerkle proved she is different from many in Washington,” said Jim Martin, Chairman of the 60 Plus Association. “Rep. Buerkle did what she promised she would do: protect Medicare for New York’s seniors. She 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. Buerkle for standing up for New York seniors and protecting Medicare – just like she promised she would.”[audio:https://www.60plus.org/files/SPA-11-R-12-Protect-Buerkle.mp3|titles=Ann Marie Buerkle 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 Congresswoman, Ann Marie Buerkle, 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 Ann Marie Buerkle at (315) 423-5657. Thank her for voting to protect Medicare and tell her to continue keeping her promise to seniors.
Paid for by the 60 Plus Association.
