Celebrate, Defend, Extend Medicare/Medicaid!

Retiree leader Mary Holomek invites everyone who supports the right to retire to a celebration of the 50th anniversary of Medicare/Medicaid. Come to 98 W Hurst Blvd in Hurst at 11AM on Thursday, July 23. The building is a UAW hall just a few blocks west of the big Bell Helicopter factory on Highway 10. Mary’s group meets there monthly, but the Texas Alliance for Retired Americans joined in this year because Medicare/Medicaid is being threatened by unscrupulous politicians who would like to privatize and voucherize it. If Medicare were privatized, it would be turned over to the insurance companies and, for practical purposes, just be another insurance program for them to make money.

The National Alliance for Retired Americans counts more than 60 Medicare/Medicaid events so far.
