    Nothing like the power of the vote from seniors and AARP members (Another union of unity based on age). They are saying, you cut our bennies, we cut your throat.

    While residents of New York’s Congressional Districts 20, 24 and 25 over the age of 50 are very concerned about the federal deficit, they oppose reductions in Social Security and Medicare benefits to help reduce the deficit.

    About seven in ten are very concerned about the federal budget deficit.

    About seven in ten oppose raising the debt limit if it means there will be cuts to Social Security and Medicare for current beneficiaries.

    Residents of Congressional Districts 20, 24 and 25 over the age of 50 believe seniors should not pay higher Medicare costs or be forced into nursing homes in order to reduce the deficit.

    About three-quarters say they are less likely to reelect their member of Congress if they support a proposal that requires seniors to pay higher Medicare premiums or pay higher out of pocket costs for Medicare services.

    Three-quarters say they are less likely to reelect their member of Congress if they support cutting Social Security benefits to help reduce the deficit.

    More than three-quarters oppose legislation that could result in cuts to services that help older Americans and people with disabilities remain in their own homes rather than go into a nursing home.

    Did you have your own bennies being cut in mind when you voted??? DUH!

    Interesting figure that show the power of the vote from the article above, so we are talking 75%, or 75 million of the seniors will tell the GOP to kiss their arse.

    Each year more than 3.5 million Boomers turn 55.Their swelling numbers predict that, by 2012, America's 50 and older population will reach 100 million. And according to the UN Population Division, 1 in 5 people are expected to be 65 or older by 2035.
