Today, Alliance for Retired Americans members proudly endorsed Raúl Grijalva for re-election to the U.S. Congress from Arizona’s 3rd District at a celebration of Social Security’s 79th anniversary in Tucson.

“Rep. Grijalva is really a champion for seniors. He can be trusted to lead with our interests. His views on keeping health care affordable and retirement secure are among the reasons that we stand behind Grijalva and his candidacy for U.S. Congress,” said Doug Hart, President of the Arizona Alliance for Retired Americans.

Grijalva holds a lifetime score of 100% for his pro-retiree votes according to the Alliance for Retired Americans 2013 Voting Record. His strong positions on fighting Social Security and Medicare privatization and strengthening Social Security and Medicare confirm his commitment to improving the quality of life for older Americans. He understands that selling off our Medicare to the big insurance companies or turning our Social Security over to Wall Street would benefit few and harm many, including Arizona seniors.

To commemorate Social Security’s birthday, activists also released a new report showing how important Social Security is to seniors in Arizona. To view the report, go to:
