Dear Gwen Ifill,
Millions of retired Americans and Americans on the verge of retirement are more worried than ever about their retirement savings. Just look at the overwhelming response we received to our post earlier in the week asking for personal stories about how congress’ inaction affects their lives. You are moderating tonight’s Vice Presidential debate, and millions of AARP members will be tuning in.
AARP members–indeed all Americans–have high hopes that at tonight’s debate, Governor Palin and Senator Biden address these fears directly. So please, Ms. Ifill, do not let either Vice Presidential candidate off the hook tonight. Press them to answer what specifically a McCain or Obama administration would to address the anxieties of retired and retiring Americans. Millions will be watching.
