Promises Made, Promises Kept
PHILADELPHIA – The 60 Plus Association, nationally recognized as the conservative alternative to the liberal AARP, today launched a new radio ad in Pennsylvania’s 7th and 8th Congressional Districts as well as New Jersey’s 3rd Congressional District, thanking Reps. Patrick Meehan, Michael Fitzpatrick, and Jon Runyan for protecting Medicare during the recent budget debates.
“Reps. Patrick Meehan, Michael Fitzpatrick, and Jon Runyan proved they are different from many in Washington,” said Jim Martin, Chairman of the 60 Plus Association. “Reps. Meehan, Fitzpatrick and Runyan did what they promised they would do: protect Medicare for Pennsylvania and New Jersey’s seniors. They 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 Reps. Meehan, Fitzpatrick and Runyan for standing up for Pennsylvania and New Jersey seniors and protecting Medicare – just like they promised they 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 districts.[audio:https://www.60plus.org/files/SPA-11-R-07-Secure.mp3|titles=Fitzpatrick, Meehan & Runyan protect 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 Congressmen – Pat Meehan, Mike Fitzpatrick and Jon Runyan – 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 can’t afford.
With 10,000 Baby Boomers reaching retirement age every day, Medicare is being crushed – and could collapse if we don’t act to strengthen and improve it.
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 Congressmen Meehan, Fitzpatrick and Runyan at (202) 225-3121. Thank them for voting to protect Medicare and tell them to continue keeping their promise to seniors.
Paid for by the 60 Plus Association.
