The National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare (NCPSSM), headed by former Congresswoman Barbara B. Kennelly, has launched a nationwide campaign urging seniors and their families to get the facts, ask tough questions and learn where the candidates stand on critical issues such as the privatization of Social Security.

"Economic, retirement and health security top the list of important issues for American voters but especially for seniors who live on fixed incomes and depend on vital programs such as Social Security and Medicare. Given our current economic slowdown and troubles on Wall Street, it is especially important that retirees, the disabled and their families understand what's at stake in the debate over Social Security and privatization." Barbara B. Kennelly, NCPSSM President and CEO

The National Committee's Voter Outreach campaign includes:

-- Radio and Print Ad campaigns prior to Presidential Debates. Radio ads online at ncpssm/news/radioads/.

-- YouTube Video - "Ask the Candidates" at: youtube/watch?v=glxUPRWCdVM.

-- Emails to National Committee members providing information and links encouraging online participation in the Presidential Town Hall debate

-- Grassroots informational events nationwide

-- NPCSSM PAC Congressional endorsement events

-- Congressional Voting Guide exclusively for NCPSSM members

Senior voters will once again play an important role in choosing the new Congress and President. Voters over age 55 turn out to the polls most consistently and in higher percentages than any other voting bloc and it appears this election year will be no exception. The National Committee believes better informed citizens make better voters and that is the ultimate goal of this nationwide outreach and education campaign.

The National Committee, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization acts in the interests of its membership through advocacy, education, services, grassroots efforts and the leadership of the Board of Directors and professional staff. The work of the National Committee is directed toward developing better-informed citizens and voters.
