Received this e-mail today from Senator Tom Udall (D. NM):
It’s been said that a society can be judged by how it treats the elderly.

Here in the United States, since 1965, the Medicare program has provided economic security for nearly 50 million senior citizens.

It’s our promise to our seniors that if you work hard and pay into the system, you won’t have to choose between putting food on the table or paying for prescription drugs.

But for years, extreme Republicans have tried to renege on this promise and to balance the budget at the expense of our senior citizens.

That’s why I’ve joined with some of my Democratic colleagues in the Senate to support the Medicare Protection Act, and we’d like your support too. Click here to add your voice to ours.


The Medicare Protection Act would ensure that the Medicare eligibility age is not raised and that Medicare is not turned into a voucher system. It would keep the promise of Medicare alive for all senior citizens now and in the future.

I hope you’ll join me in supporting this important legislation.


Thank you.
