You've Earned a Say | AARP | October 2012


New You’ve Earned a Say Reports Delivered to Congress and Candidates

AARP volunteers delivered more than 200,000 petitions along with a report entitled

— Greg Kahn/GRAIN for AARP

 

Americans have paid into Medicare and Social Security and they've earned a voice in the debate about the future of these programs.

AARP is committed to helping people make their voices heard about the future of Medicare and Social Security. That’s why we’ve delivered You’ve Earned a Say national and state reports* directly to presidential and congressional candidates, as well as to sitting lawmakers, so they can hear first-hand what Americans are saying about strengthening these vital programs. You can read the full national report (PDF) or use the dropdown menu below to read the results by state.

The reports feature the non-random, unscientific results of three You’ve Earned a Say questionnaires. Responses have been collected at events nationwide, on earnedasay.org, through the AARP Bulletin and by phone. AARP consistently hears from people of all ages and across party lines who believe Medicare and Social Security are critical to the health and retirement security of seniors, and the new report includes verbatim comments from among the more than 3 million Americans who’ve engaged in You’ve Earned a Say.

“You’ve Earned a Say is about helping people make their voices heard about the future of Medicare and Social Security,” says AARP Executive Vice President Nancy LeaMond. “These reports reflect what we’ve heard at more than 3,000 events around the country. People want Medicare and Social Security to be strengthened for their children and grandchildren and they want to know what candidates and lawmakers plan to do to put the programs on stable ground for the long-term.”

 

*The reports feature the non-random, unscientific results of three You’ve Earned a Say questionnaires. The results are not representative of AARP members or any particular group. They indicate the opinions of millions of people who chose to answer the three questionnaires.
