This new series of events is designed to engage Iowans in discussions to find responsible, common sense solutions that will secure Medicare and Social Security for future generations. Programs are coming up July 30 in Waterloo and July 31 in Des Moines. AARP launched the 2013 series with meetings in Cedar Rapids and Dubuque on June 5 & 6. Additional community conversation locations will be announced later this summer.
Throughout 2012, AARP took the debate about the future of Social Security and Medicare out of Washington and into communities across the country and across Iowa to give our members a voice. But too many in Washington still aren’t listening. They say the answer to the challenges facing Social Security is to make cuts to benefits as part of a deal to reduce the deficit. They call it the “chained CPI.” AARP believes there’s a better way and is inviting Iowans to engage in a conversations in their communities to find solutions about the future of Social Security and Medicare.
