As one of the nation’s leading advocates for seniors, The National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare has called upon four Republican Senators to serve as a “firewall” against harmful changes to Medicare.  National Committee President and CEO Max Richtman sent letters on Tuesday to Senator John McCain (R-AZ), Senator Susan Collins (R-ME), Charles Grassley (R-IA), and Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN), urging them to vote against proposals to privatize Medicare, raise the Medicare eligibility age from 65 to 67, and repeal provisions in the Affordable Care Act that improved Medicare.

For 34 years, this committee has been fighting for our benefits and winning to help citizens get what they rightly deserve and keep them. Our benefits that we depend on to pay might have been greatly reduced by all different ways without this watchdog committee's guidance.
