Armed with more than 20,000 petitions, Idaho seniors are fanning out today dropping off the documents to the local offices of Idaho's congressional delegation. Their message: hands off our Medicare and Social Security.
"Idaho seniors are no pushovers," Jim Wordelman, state director for AARP Idaho, said this morning. "These petitions represent real voices of Idahoans who've worked hard to earn their Social Security and Medicare, and don't want to see benefits cut to pay the nation's bills."
To date, nearly 4.5 million petitions have been signed across the country and will be delivered to Congress over the next week.
