Kyrsten Sinema Endorsed by National Committee to Preserve Social Security & Medicare
September 26, 2018
The National Committee to Preserve Social Security & Medicare announced their endorsement of Kyrsten Sinema for U.S. Senate, citing her strong record of fighting for Arizona seniors. The endorsement is on behalf of NCPSSM’s members and supporters, including 32,000 in Arizona.
“Our members know they can count on Kyrsten Sinema. Kyrsten understands and supports the critical roles that Social Security and Medicare play in the retirement and health of our nation’s older citizens and their families. On the other hand, Congresswoman Martha McSally’s record—which includes voting to turn Medicare into a voucher program and raise the retirement age—speaks for itself. Congresswoman McSally has voted at the expense of Arizona seniors. The Senate needs Kyrsten’s independent-minded leadership on issues affecting the health and retirement security of all Americans.”
– NCPSSM President and CEO Max Richtman
Kyrsten issued this statement:
“Arizonans earn their Social Security and Medicare benefits through a lifetime of hard work. That’s why I’m grateful to stand with the National Committee to Preserve Social Security & Medicare as we work to give Arizona seniors a voice in the U.S. Senate. Older Arizonans count on these earned benefits for a secure and healthy retirement. That’s why I’m committed to standing up for Medicare and Social Security and fighting back against efforts to cut or weaken these critical benefits.”
Kyrsten has also been endorsed by the Alliance for Retired Americans in her campaign for the U.S. Senate.
