Senator Schumer Speaks to 4,900 AARP Members Pledging Bipartisan Action on Nation's Health and Economic Crises

Senator Schumer among 360 senators who have signed the Divided We Fail pledge

NEW YORK, Jan. 13 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today Senator Charles Schumer joined AARP to deliver a powerful message to thousands of AARP members pledging to work with President Barack Obama and the new Congress to solve the nation's health care crisis and economic downturn. Senator Schumer spoke to 4,925 New Yorkers in a telephone town hall meeting this afternoon from his office in Washington, DC.

"Since the 2008 Election, the country has undergone an unprecedented financial crisis, which has only deepened the effect that skyrocketing health care costs have had on American families, including the 46 million Americans -- 2.5 million in New York State -- with no health insurance," said Lois Aronstein, AARP New York State Director.

"These daunting issues can only be solved by all members of Congress working together for the American people. That is why we thank Senator Schumer for committing to Divided We Fail and for acknowledging his constituents' appeal for answers and accountability to solve these national problems."

"National problems require national solutions, not one-party politics or Washington in-fighting," said Senator Schumer. "I took the Divided We Fail pledge in 2007 because I am committed to bringing all ideas, all viewpoints, and people from every party to the table to tackle our nation's most demanding problems. First and foremost must be getting our economy back on track and reforming our health care system so that everyone has access to preventative health care and life-saving treatments, regardless of income or employment status. I am proud to partner with Divided We Fail in that effort, and look forward to working with my colleagues to find real solutions to these challenges."
