October 18, 2016
PHOENIX – Today, Kyrsten Sinema was endorsed by the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare (NCPSSM) for her record of protecting Social Security and Medicare for Arizona seniors and future generations.
“I am proud to earn the endorsement of the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare,” said Sinema. “After a lifetime of hard work, Arizona seniors deserve to retire with dignity and security. Medicare and Social Security are earned benefits that Arizonans have paid for and deserve, and I will continue fighting to protect these programs for current seniors and future generations.”
“Our nation needs your leadership, vision and determination to fight for working families and older Americans,” said Max Richtman, President and CEO of the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare, in an endorsement letter to Kyrsten Sinema. “You earned the endorsement of the National Committee because you understand and support the critical roles that Social Security and Medicare play in the retirement and health security of our nation’s older citizens and their families. You are well-prepared to serve the needs of seniors and are making the preservation of Social Security and Medicare a priority in office.”
In Congress, Kyrsten co-founded the United Solutions Caucus, a group of bipartisan members who meet regularly to find commonsense solutions to protect Medicare and Social Security while balancing the federal budget and cutting wasteful spending
Kyrsten also introduced the SENIORS Act, a bipartisan bill to give Social Security recipients a one-time cost-of-living adjustment (COLA). She also voted to permanently repeal and replace the Medicare sustainable growth rate (SGR) to protect Arizona seniors, provide stability for doctors, and ensure Medicare remains strong and dependable.
