CONCORD, N.H. – As Congressional candidate Annie Kuster wraps up her district-wide “Standing Up For Seniors” tour, the Kuster campaign today released a list of more than 200 seniors supporting Annie’s candidacy in the Second District.
The list includes senior supporters from Nashua and Windham to Bath and Jaffery, highlighting Annie’s strong support among Granite State seniors who know that Annie will protect the Medicare and Social Security benefits they’ve spent their lives earning.
“I paid into Medicare all my working life, and now as a senior I rely on it for my healthcare,” said Cynthia Chase, a State Representative from Keene. “I’m supporting Annie because she has a plan to protect Medicare, and I know that if she says she’s going to do something, she’ll get it done.”
Charlie Balban, President of the New Hampshire Alliance for Retired Americans, added, “Ann McLane Kuster’s strong commitment to protect Medicare from privatization and benefit cuts demonstrates her commitment to improving the quality of life for older Americans. Her stances on providing more affordable health care for older Americans, as well as strengthening retirement and pension security make her a candidate our members can get behind.”
Jane Brickett of Lancaster noted, “I have voted for Congressmen Bass six times but I just cannot support someone who repeatedly votes to end Medicare as we know it. That’s not how we treat people in New Hampshire. I know that Annie will protect Medicare and Social Security for seniors like me and my children and grandchildren. That’s why she has my vote in November.”
On the final day of her district-wide “Standing Up For Seniors” tour, Annie Kuster said, “I am grateful to have the support of seniors all across New Hampshire who recognize how high the stakes are in this election. Congressman Bass has consistently supported a budget that would end Medicare’s guaranteed benefits and force seniors to pay thousands more out of pocket each year. Instead of asking seniors to pay more so millionaires can pay less, I will protect and strengthen Medicare so that seniors and future generations will have reliable health care.”
This week, Kuster held events with seniors in Nashua, Salem, Concord, and Peterborough.
