The Alliance for Retired Americans — an organization of retirees with over four million members across the country — today endorsed Senator Maggie Hassan for re-election, citing her commitment to lower prescription drug prices and strengthening Medicare and Social Security.
“[Senator Hassan’s] positions demonstrate a strong commitment to ensuring that all Americans have the secure retirement they have earned. We welcome your leadership on issues such as strengthening Medicare and Social Security, while protecting the programs from cuts or privatization efforts. Our members support your candidacy because of your belief in affordable health care, including lower drug prices, pension security, and quality long-term care,” said President of The Alliance of Retired Americans Robert Roach, Executive Director Richard Fiesta, and Secretary-Treasurer Joseph Peters, Jr.
“I have always worked to ensure that every American can retire with dignity, and I am honored to have the support of the Alliance for Retired Americans,” Senator Hassan said. “While I have worked to lower the costs of prescription drugs for seniors, my opponent, Don Bolduc, supports ending Social Security and Medicare as we know it, giving New Hampshire seniors a stark choice to make this Tuesday.”
Senator Hassan has a long record of delivering for New Hampshire seniors. She helped pass a landmark law that will allow Medicare to negotiate prescription drug prices, cap out of pocket costs for medications for Medicare beneficiaries, and cap insulin for seniors at $35 a month. While Senator Hassan has fought to protect Medicare and Social Security and lower health care costs, Don Bolduc is pushing an extreme agenda that would be devastating for seniors across New Hampshire, including opposing efforts to lower prescription drug prices and calling for ending Social Security and Medicare as we know it.
