Retirees In Danger!

How would you like to pay five times as much for insurance as younger people?  What about losing your pension or having your Social Security Cut? Right now, Congress is deliberating all those things.

We need to organize retirees to fight back! I’m starting a digital organizing committee for the on-line part of organizing. Join me by clicking on this link:  https://actionnetwork.org/forms/we-will-organize

Rich Fiesta, Executive Director of the Alliance for Retired Americans warns that Congress may vote on the Republican cuts-for-health-care bill as early as tomorrow! He asks that we all call 1-866-828-4162 to be connected to our member of Congress’ office right away and tell them to vote “NO on the AHCA!”

Members of the Texas Alliance for Retired Americans are calling and visiting politicians and demanding that they save and expand the right to retire. We are the front line in this battle!
