The National Seniors Council engaged in a letter-writing campaign to the House of Representatives recently to urge Members of Congress to sponsor the Guaranteed 3% CoLA Act of 2021, formerly championed by Congressman Eliot Engel.
“It’s very important to senior citizens that they get a fair raise in their benefits every year, which is ,” stated National Director Carole Rhodes. “So it’s up to our active members and supporters to continue to participate in our national surveys and petition drives to ensure our legislative team has the petitions and data in hand to garner support for this critical piece of legislation,” continued Rhodes.
You can do your part as well by calling your Congressman and demand that he or she cosponsor this bill immediately. Remember, strength comes in numbers on Capitol Hill, and the more concerned seniors that join this battle and have their voices heard, the better success we’ll have.
The National Seniors Council (NSC) recently released the results of its 2021 National “Goodbye Medicare” Survey. This comprehensive survey gauges the interest and sentiments of NSC’s members and supporters on pressing issues that face them on a daily basis.
“Once again, this comprehensive survey shows that the members of The National Seniors Council overwhelmingly support standing up to big government and protecting Social Security from Congress, particularly Medicare,” explains NSC National Director, Carole Rhodes. “We are pleased that our members’ priorities are exactly in line with the issues we have been pursuing.”
The complete results of the survey were sent to the entire House of Representatives and Senate, as well as all major media outlets and the White House. A representative sample of 7,492 NSC members participated in this year’s research effort. That means the survey includes many more respondents than a typical political poll conducted by the news media.
“Every year The National Seniors Council surveys its members on the critical issues of the day,” continued Rhodes. “We have found that our members and supporters use this vehicle to have their voices heard on Capitol Hill, and we are more than happy to support their efforts.”
