"Raising the retirement age would inflict further hardship among a group of workers who are likely to face health and economic problems in their 60s." –Doug Hart, President, Arizona Alliance for Retired Americans
The following statement was issued today by Edward F. Coyle, Executive Director of the Alliance for Retired Americans, in response to the House passage of the Republicans’ Budget Reconciliation Bill:
"Today the House passed the Sequester Replacement Reconciliation Act. In doing so, they took the country further down the path set by their Budget Committee Chairman, Paul Ryan - a path that jeopardizes seniors' health so that the wealthiest 1% can continue to receive tax breaks. In short, the House passed a reconciliation bill that lays out more spending cuts that target the most vulnerable among us, including seniors.
