Divided We Fail: AARP New Hampshire To Host Issues Forum on Healthcare and Lifetime Financial Security in Bedford

Manchester — AARP New Hampshire will host a community issues forum on health care and lifetime financial security with special guest Senator John McCain in Bedford on Saturday, October 13. As part of the Divided We Fail initiative, AARP continues to encourage the conversation on these top domestic issues by encouraging presidential candidates to answer questions from AARP members and voters. Divided We Fail is a collaboration of AARP, Business Roundtable and Service Employees International Union (SEIU).

As the first-in-the-nation primary state, AARP is focusing attention and resources in New Hampshire to mobilize our 240,000 members to demand action, answers and accountability on the issues of health care and lifetime financial security. The United States is reaching a tipping point with millions of Americans concerned about their health and lifetime financial security. We believe our leaders must pursue bipartisan solutions that benefit all Americans.
