At Vice President Joe Biden’s events today in Florida, seniors came out to show their support for the candidate they’ll be voting for in a few short weeks.
Anita, Sylvia, and Harriet came to see Joe Biden because he’s a strong voice for the senior community. Rudy wants four more years because there’s too much at stake for every generation. Howard is voting Obama-Biden because he knows they are “making sure seniors are taken care of and can retire with dignity.”
Howard and Ricki of Boca Raton want “four more years of President Obama and Vice President Biden, because we spent our whole lives working and paying our fair share into Social Security” and because “Medicare is our right, not something that should have a cap on it or be voucherized.” And Dave wants Mitt Romney to know one thing: “The voucher system won’t work.”
Four senior women from Wynmoor Village also showed up to see the Vice President—Violet, Ruthann, Zelna, and Laura do voter registration with new students at local colleges in their spare time. Laura says:
“We believe young people need to recognize that this election is about their future, too. One day, those students will also need Social Security and Medicare, and they need to know what’s at stake in this election.”
The four friends plan to host a debate watch party next Wednesday for some friends in their community, a mix of supporters and folks who are undecided.
