AARP Taking Campaign to the Streets

March 28th, 2008 by flanews

The AARP is taking the states budget battle on the road. Lawmakers want to cut Medicaid programs that help senior citizens. Today in Tallahassee, the AARP unveiled its Champ-mobile. The audio-video booth on wheels will allow people across the state to record their concerns about issues that affect them the most. Florida AARP members pin pointed several of those issues today, including the proposed budget cuts and concerns about a lack of affordable health care for seniors.

Something serious is wrong in America when a lifetime of hard work and achievement can be wiped out by one serious illness. Something is wrong in America when a lifetime of contribution to your company and to your community can count for little or nothing when you are older, said Lori Parham the Florida AARP Director.

The Champmobile is part of AARPs Divided We Fail campaign. The campaigns goal is to convince lawmakers to abandon partisan politics and focus on the needs of seniors.
