Post-Election Washington: What's in Store for Seniors?

Meeting Description:
In this exclusive webinar with NCOA's Public Policy & Advocacy team, learn what's at stake for seniors and the aging network in post-election Washington, DC.

In the same way that a struggling senior has to choose between paying for food or medicine, Congress and the Administration will have to make major decisions about where to spend and where to cut public dollars and what to do about taxes. Some federal budget decisions will be made in December during a "lame duck" session and others early next year.

  • How the debate on potential across-the-board cuts could affect services that support seniors' health and economic security.
  • What could happen with tax cuts and Medicare provisions that some want to extend.
  • What a “grand bargain” on deficit reduction could look like and what it would mean for programs serving seniors.
  • What you can do to help influence the outcomes of these important decisions.
