Texas Retirees are on the Front Lines!

All over Texas, members of the Texas Alliance for Retired Americans (TARA)  are  in the first ranks of the  many ongoing battles for decent living, rights, and dignity in America. Retirees are making calls, filling out petitions, visiting political leaders, and hitting the streets with younger protesters.  We initiate    many of the activities!

Even though they were  in their home districts, many of our political “leaders” were hiding from their constituents. If we couldn’t find them, we protested at their offices!

Congressman Burgess claims to have a good plan to replace Obamacare, but you can bet it will entail less coverage for Americans and more money for the insurance companies!

TARA members are talking to the political leaders whenever we can find them.  Our message is to defend and expand pensions, health care and Social Security. Our motto is “Don’t let us be the last generation to retire!”
