Louisiana Medicare Rx Access Network, and the Aging and Disability Resource Centers/LouisianaAnswers.com, honored Representative Steve Scalise for his efforts to protect the health benefits and security of Louisiana’s seniors.

 

Al Robichaux, Director, Jefferson Council on Aging presented the RetireSafe “Standing Up For America’s Seniors” Award commemorative plaque at the Congressman’s Metairie office, recognizing Rep. Scalise’s’s accomplishments and service to older Americans.

A bipartisan group of Members of Congress are being recognized by RetireSafe in their home districts throughout the August recess. These members have acted to protect seniors’ health care benefits, by ensuring access to affordable medications through Medicare Part D, opposing any laws or regulations that threaten the doctor/patient relationship and speaking out against proposals that threaten to limit access to health care and increase Medicare premiums.

“America’s seniors continue to count on those in Washington who are willing to put politics aside and fight for the benefits they have earned,” said RetireSafe President Thair Phillips. “The benefits and rights of seniors are under attack and seniors need champions in Washington to preserve the benefits that many seniors depend on,” he continued. “RetireSafe is pleased to be able to recognize these Members of Congress, some of them for the second time in a row, for their tireless work in protecting Medicare and supporting seniors both in Washington and locally,” he concluded.

RetireSafe is a nonprofit, nonpartisan grassroots organization that advocates and educates on behalf of America’s seniors on issues regarding Social Security, Medicare, health and financial well-being.
