Seniors Bill of Rights
Last week, the House Democratic Caucus launched the Seniors Task Force to engage American seniors on issues relevant to them [ http://www.dems.gov/seniors ]. Co-chaired by Congresswomen Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) and Doris Matsui (D-CA), the caucus introduced H. Res. 1342, a Seniors Bill of Rights.
The legislation addresses Democratic support for senior priorities including: protection from scams and fraud; affordable health care; safe and livable communities; and economic security [ http://www.dems.gov/seniors/bill-of-rights ]. “With seniors living longer, it is a relief to see our government paying attention to the needs of the growing retiree population,” said Ruben Burks, Secretary-Treasurer of the Alliance.
Ellison, McCollum, Oberstar, Peterson & Walz are Caucus members from MN.
