WHO: Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter and Granite State seniors
WHAT: Forum on Social Security, Medicare & Medicaid
WHERE: William B. Cashin Senior Center, 151 Douglass Street, Manchester
WHEN: Monday, April 1 from 2:30 – 3:30 pm
WHY: Today we are faced with one of most serious assaults on Medicare and Social Security since the program began. Together Granite Staters can ensure these programs are around today and for future generations. During the forum members of the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare will present the Congresswoman with over 400 petition signatures calling on her to protect benefits Granite Staters have worked for, paid for and earned; the petition also calls on Congress to oppose privatization and other proposals that threaten retirement and health security.
Community members will share their stories about how Social Security and Medicare have affected their families and their communities and call on Congresswoman Carol Shea Porter to continue to stand with seniors. Granite State Organizing Project President, Brian Mitchell stated, “Don’t be fooled by those who want you to believe social security is broken; social security does not add a penny to the debt and can be there for our children and our grandchildren.”
