Happy new year. I hope we all can, as the old song says, “accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative” as we go forward into 2021.
I think it will be critical for you to make your voices heard in 2021 as we support the positive changes to healthcare and fight against the negative changes that will hurt older Americans.
No matter what happens tomorrow in the Senate races in Georgia there will be slim majorities in both the House and the Senate. Legislation may pass or fail by just a few key votes. Your informed voices could have a huge impact on the outcome of legislation, regulation and executive orders that come out of Congress and the new administration.
I cannot overemphasize the impact of a constituent’s opinion on each of your senators and representative. The politics of many states and congressional districts are changing and that fact just magnifies the importance of a well-informed constituent. At Seniors Speak Out we will work hard to wade through the rhetoric and “Washington speak” to give you the facts on how proposed changes will affect older Americans. The pandemic has accelerated many changes to how our healthcare is administered. Seniors Speak Out will work hard to keep you informed and amplify your voices as we face the proposed changes that are sure to come.
