Post-Debate Statement from AARP Board Member Joyce Payne
Date:9/27/2007

WASHINGTON, Sept. 27 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- "Tonight the candidates lost an opportunity to engage in a discussion about health and financial security, two issues that dominate people's day to day lives.

"These issues are especially important in the African American community, with one in four adults lacking health coverage and one-third concerned they will not be able to afford to retire.

"With just one question asked about health care, we call on the moderators to bring these issues up in the future and on the candidates to provide more information about how they will end the partisan fighting and move towards solutions that address the health and financial security challenges faced daily by all Americans. All the Republican candidates will have another opportunity to talk about these issues at AARP's upcoming candidate forum on October 25th in Sioux City, Iowa."

Divided We Fail and AARP are monitoring the number of health and financial security questions asked during the Presidential debates. For more information about Divided We Fail and the debate, log onto the Divided We Fail debate tracker at http://www.dividedwefail.org.
