National Seniors Advocate, Barbara Kennelly, Reacts To President Obama’s Address To Congress

February 25, 2009 at 11:00 am Leave a comment

“America’s seniors are looking to the Obama administration and Congress to
develop an economic strategy that protects our assets and confronts our
true liabilities. I’m glad President Obama kept the fiscal focus tonight where it
belongs, building a foundation for a lasting prosperity. Social Security and
Medicare are a part of that foundation today and will continue to play a vital
role during this economic crisis and well into our future.  The President is
right, comprehensive healthcare reform is the best way to strengthen
Medicare for the future and that healthcare reform should come sooner rather
than later. The President tonight also called for a conversation about the
future of Social Security. The National Committee to Preserve Social Security
and Medicare, on behalf of our millions of members and supporters, looks
forward to being a clear voice in that conversation.” .Barbara B. Kennelly,
