Today, Alliance for Retired Americans members proudly endorsed Nick Rahall for re-election to the U.S. Congress from West Virginia’s 3rd District at a celebration of Social Security’s 79th anniversary in Beckley.

“Nick Rahall 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 Nick Rahall and his candidacy for U.S. Congress,” said Richard Fiesta, Executive Director of the Alliance for Retired Americans.

Nick Rahall holds a lifetime score of 94% 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 West Virginia seniors.

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