Robert Hurt Honored By National Senior Organization For His Commitment To 5th District Seniors

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Robert Hurt (R-Virginia) today released the following statement after receiving the RetireSafe Standing Up For America’s Seniors Award for his leadership in Congress on behalf of our seniors:

“Preserving critical retirement security programs for our 5th District seniors is of great importance to me and I am honored to receive this recognition. The people that I represent know that Medicare is on an unsustainable path and they want real leadership to save the program – not a kick the can down the road type of leadership we have seen in years past. On behalf of Virginia’s 5th District, I remain committed to working to strengthen this critical program for our seniors, ensuring that it is available for current and future beneficiaries, and doing so while helping to restore our nation to fiscal sustainability.”
