National AARP President Rob Romasco

AARP invites metro-area residents to attend An Afternoon with AARP featuring national AARP President Rob Romasco at the Salvation Army Kroc Center in Omaha on Oct. 30.

During the event, Romasco will be joined by AARP leaders from Nebraska and Iowa to host a You’ve Earned a Say discussion about responsible solutions that will secure Medicare for future generations and prevent harmful cuts to Social Security.

You’ve Earned a Say is a national conversation committed to providing Americans with information about the Medicare and Social Security proposals on the table in Washington — without the political jargon and spin.

“Too many politicians say the answer to the challenges facing Social Security and Medicare is to cut benefits or force seniors to pay more,” said Bob Eppler, state president of AARP Nebraska. “AARP believes there is a better way. We want to make sure that ordinary Americans who have paid into the system have a voice in the debate and so future generations get the benefits they’ve earned.”

An Afternoon with AARP, which is free and open to the public, will be held from 12 p.m. to 3:45 p.m. at the Salvation Army Kroc Center, 2825 Y St. The program includes:

  • 12 p.m. – 1:15 p.m.- Lunch and a You’ve Earned a Say conversation on Social Security and Medicare with AARP President Rob Romasco.


Breakout Sessions

  • 1:30 – 2:30 p.m. – Tips & Tricks for Social Media (bring your smart phone or tablet); Who Pays: Making Nebraska’s Taxation System Fair;  and Great Places for All Ages.
  • 2:45- 3:45 p.m. - Understanding the New Health Care Law;  A Roundtable Chat with AARP President Rob Romasco;  and Tips & Tricks for Social Media (bring your smart phone or tablet).
