Laredo – Members of the Alliance for Retired Americans proudly announced their endorsement of Jessica Cisneros for election to the U.S. House of Representatives from Texas’s 28th Congressional District today. The Texas Alliance for Retired Americans (TARA) is a grassroots advocacy organization with more than 152,000 members across the state.

“Jessica Cisneros understands the challenges facing older Americans, and retirees in Texas can be confident that she will fight for our interests in Washington,” said Gene Lantz, president of the Texas Alliance. “She knows that seniors have earned the Social Security and Medicare benefits they rely on, and she will battle every day to protect and expand them. We are pleased to endorse her.”

“We especially welcome her leadership in efforts to expand Social Security benefits and ensure that the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes to help secure the program for future generations,” he continued.

“We can also count on Jessica to fight to allow Medicare to negotiate lower prices for the life-saving prescription drugs older people rely on,” Lantz added. “Voting for the candidate who will put older Texans first is essential to our health and economic security.”
