Seniors Thank Rep. Dold for Protecting Medicare in New Campaign

Promises Made, Promises Kept

CHICAGO – The 60 Plus Association, nationally recognized as the conservative alternative to the liberal AARP, today launched a new campaign in Illinois’s 10th Congressional District, thanking Rep. Robert Dold for protecting Medicare during the recent budget debates.

“Rep. Robert Dold proved he is different from many in Washington,” said Jim Martin, Chairman of the 60 Plus Association.  “Rep. Dold did what he promised he would do:  protect Medicare for Illinois’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. Dold for standing up for Illinois seniors and protecting Medicare – just like he promised he would.”

The campaign, which consists of direct mail and phone calls, will begin on April 21.
