Raybould Campaign to Host Crisis Summit for Seniors in Omaha

Leader McConnell and Senator Fischer Ready to Slash Social Security & Medicare. Raybould: We Must Act Now.

A vote for Senator Fischer is a vote to kill retirement.” The fate of Social Security and Medicare are directly tied to the election on November 6. 

LINCOLN, NE – In response to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s outrageous comments calling for the slashing of Social Security and the complete disruption of Medicare, hail mary attempts to address the ballooning deficit he and Senator Fischer created, Jane Raybould is organizing a “Crisis Summit for Seniors” to build a coalition and organize efforts to stop the shredding of the social safety net.

“Aging Nebraskans, whether they depend on this programs today or will depend on them in the near future, have every right to be alarmed and incredibly upset. Leader McConnell and Senator Fischer have given us yet another peak behind-the-curtain of their plan to give the wealthiest individuals and huge multinational corporations a tax cut while crushing the middle class and anyone hoping to retire with dignity,” said US Senate candidate Jane Raybould.

She added, “If you are among the one-percent of Nebraskans who will never have to worry about saving for retirement or making ends meet in the face of exorbitant health care costs, then you have no reason to worry. To everyone else and to those who know and love the rest of Nebraska’s population: We must act now. The fate of Social Security and Medicare are directly tied to the election on November 6. A vote for Senator Fischer is a vote to kill retirement.”

Raybould has made the protection of Social Security and Medicare a centerpiece of her campaign. As Nebraska’s next U.S. Senator, Raybould is committed to fighting Senate Majority Leader McConnell’s attack on the programs that allow Nebraskans to retire with dignity.

The event will be held in Omaha on Friday, October 26. Time and location forthcoming.
