AMERICANS 50-PLUS ARE THE NATION’S MOST POWERFUL VOTING BLOC. This election, Medicare, Social Security, support for family caregivers, and prescription drug costs are all on the line.
As candidates are out knocking on doors, are you ready to ask what they will do to support aging in place, protect access to quality affordable health care, and other issues that are important to you? Not quite sure what to ask? Here are a few sample questions to consider.
AARP Maine is asking local members and volunteers to host a debate-watch party in their communities. Watch parties can be in your own living room, your local library, or even your favorite restaurant with a good-sized television. AARP Maine is a co-sponsor of several debates this year and we welcome the opportunity to work with you to raise awareness about the candidates' positions on issues of importance to Mainers 50+ and their families.
AARP is sponsoring three televised debates this fall with candidates for governor and U.S. senator. The debates will cover issues of interest to Mainers 50-plus—Social Security, Medicare, caregiving, prescription drug costs and affordable housing.
