PA Alliance for Retired Americans Schedules Birthday Party for Social Security with Cong. Altmire

Posted by randyshannon on August 26, 2010

Dear Alliance Member:

Social Security is turning 75 years old this month, and we are throwing a party to celebrate! Additionally, we will be releasing a report on the impact of Social Security here in Pennsylvania. You are invited to attend the event on Wednesday, September 1st at 2:30pm at the Community College of Beaver County’s Learning Resource Center, in Monaca, PA.

Congressman Jason Altmire will be in attendance to join the celebration.  Birthday Cake will be served! You are welcome and encouraged to bring your family and friends of all ages who support Social Security!

Celebrating this milestone for Social Security is important, as there is a growing chorus among politicians and the media to cut Social Security benefits in order to reduce the deficit – or to privatize the program – each of which will hurt seniors, people with disabilities and children. Of course, Social Security did not cause the deficit; it is paid for with special taxes on our wages. If you paid in, then you and your family earn the right to benefits. This is an excellent chance to show Congressman Altmire that seniors in Western Pennsylvania support Social Security, and we won’t stand to see it cut!  We look forward to you joining us.  Please RSVP to Alliance staff member Adam Swope at 202-341-7821 or aswope@retiredamericans.org, if you plan to attend, or have any questions.
