With Election Day just two away, AARP Rhode Island volunteers today delivered a report entitled “Rhode Islanders Have Their Say about Medicare and Social Security” to Rhode Island Members of Congress and congressional candidates today. Read the report and learn more about how "You've Earned a Say" is
The report conveys the opinions of nearly 2,300 Rhode Islanders who have participated in You’ve Earned a Say – a national conversation about how to protect Social Security and Medicare for today’s seniors and strengthen them for future generations. National and state-specific versions of the report will be delivered to presidential and congressional candidates in every state, as well as sitting lawmakers, so they can hear directly from Americans about strengthening these vital programs.
“Through You’ve Earned a Say, we’ve heard from voters from across the Ocean State who think that when it comes to the Medicare and Social Security, Washington isn’t listening,” said AARP Rhode Island State Director Kathleen S. Connell. “With these reports, we are helping Rhode Islanders make their voices heard with candidates and lawmakers.”
