Last Wednesday, the President of the National Committee to Protect Social Security and Medicare Political Action Committee (NCPSSM PAC) Max Richtman came to Rhode Island to announce the organization’s formal endorsement of General Treasurer and congressional candidate Seth Magaziner in the race to represent the Ocean State’s second congressional district.
The NCPSSM is the nation’s leading advocacy group that fights to protect Social Security and Medicare. An estimated 192,000 Rhode Islanders currently receive social security benefits and for many seniors, it is their only source of income, according to the NCPSSM PAC.
“Kevin McCarthy and Republicans in Congress have made it clear that if they win control of the House, they intend to cut and privatize the Social Security and Medicare benefits that seniors have earned,” Richtman said. “We are proud to endorse Seth Magaziner because he will fight to protect Social Security and Medicare and stand up to anyone who tries to cut these programs that allows millions of Americans to retire with dignity.”
Magaziner’s will face Republican opponent Allan Fung, the former mayor of Cranston, in the Nov. 8 General Election.
“Rhode Island seniors have paid into Social Security and Medicare — they earned the right to these benefits. In Congress, I will fight to protect Social Security and Medicare from extreme Republicans determined to cut these cital programs,” Magaziner said. “Rhode Islanders cannot afford Allan Fung enabling Kevin McCarthy’s extremist agenda.”
