Alliance for Retired Americans Enthusiastically Endorses Joe Biden for Reelection
Washington, DC — Citing President Biden’s record of commitment to retirement security for every American, the Alliance for Retired Americans, a national grassroots advocacy organization, today endorsed Joe Biden for reelection as President and Kamala Harris as Vice President.
The Alliance has 4.4 million members nationwide including more than 900,000 who live in the battleground states of Arizona, Florida, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.
“Older Americans can trust Joe Biden because he always fights for us. With another term, he will do even more to strengthen and expand Social Security and Medicare, lower drug prices and protect the pension benefits we have earned,” said Robert Roach, Jr., President of the Alliance.
“Everything is at stake for seniors in this election,” said Roach. “Our members know how to get things done and will be talking with their friends and family about the Biden-Harris record, making calls, knocking on doors and ensuring people know when and where to vote. They are going to work enthusiastically every day to help keep the President and Vice President in the White House.”
“Thanks to President Biden, all Medicare beneficiaries are paying no more than $35 per month for insulin; all recommended vaccines are free; and Medicare Part D beneficiaries will pay no more than $3,200 out of pocket annually for drugs. President Biden also forced wealthy pharmaceutical corporations to negotiate lower drug prices with Medicare for the first time in history, which will save seniors and taxpayers billions of dollars over the next several years,” Roach continued.
In addition, retirees with pensions are going to receive the benefits they earned. The Butch Lewis Act, signed into law by Biden as part of the American Rescue Plan in 2021, is keeping 2 to 3 million workers’ pension plans solvent and able to pay full benefits through at least 2051.
“President Biden insisted that Congress solve the multi-employer pension crisis,” said Roach. “Thanks to him millions of workers and retirees will have the retirement security they counted on.”
The Alliance also commended President Biden’s and Vice President Harris’ unwavering opposition to cuts to Social Security and Medicare, support for caregivers, and work to eliminate junk fees that chip away at Americans’ savings and investments.
