Today, Alliance for Retired Americans members proudly endorsed Jeanne Shaheen for re-election to the U.S. Senate at a celebration of Social Security’s 79th anniversary in Manchester.

“Jeanne Shaheen is really a champion for seniors. She can be trusted to lead with our interests. Her views on keeping health care affordable and retirement secure are among the reasons that we stand behind Jeanne Shaheen and her candidacy for U.S. Senate,” said Lucy Edwards, President of the New Hampshire Alliance for Retired Americans.

Jeanne Shaheen holds a lifetime score of 96% for her pro-retiree votes according to the Alliance for Retired Americans 2013 Voting Record. Her strong positions on fighting Social Security and Medicare privatization and strengthening Social Security and Medicare confirm her commitment to improving the quality of life for older Americans. She 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 New Hampshire seniors.

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

The Alliance for Retired Americans represents over 4.3 million retirees and community activists, including more than 13,000 members in New Hampshire.
