AARP Hosts Listening Sessions in North Country

YEAS_AARP_notag

AARP New Hampshire returns to the North Country and invites residents to share their ideas and “have a say” about the future of Social Security and Medicare during the organization’s second You’ve Earned a Say tour of the North Country.  Listening sessions will be held in Shelburne, Berlin and Gorham; an information session will be held in Gorham for those interested in volunteering for AARP. 

Throughout 2012, AARP took the debate about the future of Social Security and Medicare out of Washington and into communities across New Hampshire so Granite Staters could have a voice.  But too many in Washington 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 Granite Staters to engage in a discussion on finding responsible, commonsense solutions about the future of Social Security and Medicare, programs that matter to them and their families. 

Here’s where you’ll find AARP during the upcoming You’ve Earned a Say Tour of the North Country:
