Biden campaign launches “Seniors for Biden-Harris” program to reach older voters in Pennsylvania

President Joe Biden’s re-election campaign is launching an initiative to reach out to older voters in Pennsylvania as presidential candidates try to court this huge segment of the state’s electorate.

Seniors for Biden-Harris events are scheduled for next week in three Pennsylvania cities; in Lancaster, Scranton and Philadelphia, where the campaign will highlight Biden administration policies that have benefited seniors, such as: lowering the cost of prescription drugscovering Insulin prices for seniors are $35AND pushes for Social Security and Medicare.

During his State of the Union address on March 7, Biden said he would try to prevent any efforts to restrict entitlement programs. “If anyone here tries to cut Social Security or Medicare or raise the retirement age, I will stop them,” he said.

Seniors representing Biden Harris will also focus on what presumptive Republican Party nominee Donald Trump has said about what he would do if re-elected.

For example, Trump said during March 11 interview on CNBC’s Squawk Box showed that “a lot can be done on entitlements, slashing, and entitlement theft and mismanagement” when asked how he would approach Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security.
