Seniors Thank Congress for Protecting Medicare
60 Plus launches new ads and direct mail campaign in 39 Congressional Districts
ALEXANDRIA, VA – The 60 Plus Association, nationally recognized as the conservative alternative to the liberal AARP, today launched a new campaign in 39 Congressional Districts, thanking Members for protecting Medicare during the recent budget debates. The organization will spend over $800,000 across the nation on radio ads, direct mail, and phone calls.
“Washington did something unusual this week,” said Jim Martin, Chairman of the 60 Plus Association. “Policymakers did what they said they would do. The budget proposal passed by the House protects and preserves Medicare, ensuring it will be available to current and future seniors. On behalf of the 60 Plus Association, I would like to thank the Members of Congress who stood up for seniors, strengthened and improved Medicare, and protected the program from being crushed by a crippling debt.”
The one-minute radio ads will begin airing on April 21. To listen to the ad from Florida’s 22nd Congressional District, please visit http://60plus.org/seniors-thank-west-medicare-radio/.
