Senate Votes to Proceed - 60 Plus Announces New 9 State TV Campaign Targeted at Senators to Protect Medicare

The state specific ad asks seniors to call their Senator, and ends with a senior reminding Congress "Seniors will NOT forget."

"Members of Congress are trying to hide behind the AARP endorsement of this bill as a defense, but A
