Committed to Protecting Seniors from Unfair Cutbacks

Spokane, WA – Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) led two successful events today with members of Spokane’s senior citizen community.  As a strong advocate for seniors, Rep. McMorris Rodgers assured the community that she would continue to protect them from any unfair government cutbacks.

“As you all know, there is a debate in Congress on how we can reduce our massive budget deficit and get our national debt under control,” said Rep. McMorris Rodgers.  “As this process continues, please know that our seniors will be protected, and the Medicare you have now will continue without change – whether Republicans or Democrats are in control.”

Rep. McMorris Rodgers spoke with seniors during a tour of Spokane’s Northeast Community Center and then led a seniors stakeholder meeting in her office to discuss the most important issues facing Eastern Washington’s seniors.

“The greatest generation our country has ever seen is getting older and we owe it to them to ensure that the sacrifices they made were worthwhile,” she said.  “I am committed to honoring your hard work and the sacrifices you’ve made.  That’s why I am fighting to protect Medicare, preserve Social Security, strengthen community pharmacies, and ensure choices for affordable long-term care.  It’s with these priorities that I will continue to represent you in Congress.”
