From Edward Coyle, Executive Director Of The Alliance For Retired Americans: The End Of The Super Committee Is Good News For Seniors

Adds Coyle: It’s “Unconscionable” To Cut Retiree Programs To Pay For Tax Cuts For Millionaires

The following statement was issued by Edward Coyle, Executive Director of the Alliance for Retired Americans:

The lack of recommendations from the Super Committee is good news for current and future Retirees.  Over the past several months, activists with the Alliance for Retired Americans and other progressive groups helped send a clear message to Congress – Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid are critical lifelines for millions of Americans and cannot be sacrificed on the altar of even greater tax breaks for Wall Street and corporate CEOs.  This was not the first threat that Retirees have faced to their Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid – and it will not be the last.  There may even be votes to cut these programs in December.  At a time when so many Retirees are struggling to get by, and when today’s Workers wonder if they will ever be able to retire, it is unconscionable that Republicans continue to eye cuts to these programs as a way to fund an extension of tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans.  As we head into the 2012 Elections, the Alliance for Retired Americans will educate and mobilize seniors across the country on these important issues.  Today, the power of grassroots activism helped spare Seniors from terribly painful and unjust cuts.  Next year, it will be more important than ever for both Retirees and Workers to know the truth about where the candidates stand on Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.
