Press Release
WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Alliance for Retired Americans, a national organization representing three million retirees around the country, today released its annual Congressional Voting Record, which rates Members of Congress on key votes to protect Medicare and Social Security and reflects their commitment to older Americans.

Congresswoman Linda Sánchez received a score of 100 percent.

“I am proud to receive this rating from the Alliance for Retired Americans. Protecting Medicare and working to save Social Security are two of my top priorities. We owe it to our parents and grandparents to produce legislation that will provide them with the benefits they need and deserve,” said Congresswoman Linda Sánchez.

The Alliance for Retired Americans is an organization that works to educate and spread the word to retirees throughout the country on potential changes to Medicare, prescription drug reform and Social Security issues. The 2003 Congressional Voting Record rated Members of the House of Representatives based on ten votes that were important to the health and economic security of seniors, including Medicare, retiree benefits, tax breaks and issues involving family caregivers.

“Our Medicare and Social Security systems should improve the quality of life for all seniors. It is also important to have a prescription drug plan that provides real people with real benefits. I will continue to work hard in Congress to ensure that all seniors can access the healthcare and medicine they need, ” concluded Sánchez.
