(OPEN):
WITH VOTERS HEADING TO THE POLLS NEXT WEEK [ON TUESDAY, JUNE 25TH] FOR THE SENATE SPECIAL-ELECTION, A-A-R-P MASSACHUSETTS' STATE-DIRECTOR, MICHAEL FESTA [AS IN "FESTIVE" AND "FRESCA"], SAYS THAT THE VOTE MAY BE CRITICAL IN DETERMINING THE FUTURE OF BOTH MEDICARE AND SOCIAL SECURITY...

(FESTA):
"
ROUGHLY 14-THOUSAND MASSACHUSETTS-RESIDENTS HAVE COMPLETED ONE OF OUR 'YOU'VE EARNED A SAY'-QUESTIONNAIRES.  AND, THE MAJORITY OF THE RESPONDENTS BELIEVE THAT THESE PROGRAMS NEED TO BE STRENGTHENED, IN ORDER TO BE STRONG FOR THEIR CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN.  A MILLION OLDER MASSACHUSETTS-RESIDENTS RELY ON SOCIAL SECURITY AND MEDICARE.  INDEED, SOCIAL SECURITY KEEPS ONE-THIRD OF THE BAY STATE'S SENIORS OUT OF POVERTY.  THAT'S WHY WE'RE FIGHTING FOR RESPONSIBLE SOLUTIONS, TO KEEP THESE PROGRAMS SECURE--NOT HARMFUL CUTS THAT CAN BREAK THE PROMISES [THAT] WE'VE MADE TO THOSE WHO'VE PAID IN ALL OF THEIR LIVES.  THIS INCLUDES THE 'CHAINED C-P-I'--WHICH WOULD HURT SENIORS, WOMEN, PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES, AND VETERANS WHO'VE SACRIFICED SO MUCH FOR THIS COUNTRY."

(CLOSE):
A-A-R-P MASSACHUSETTS IS OFFERING A FREE "VOTERS' GUIDE" THAT DETAILS WHERE THE SENATE-CANDIDATES STAND ON SOCIAL SECURITY, MEDICARE, AND FINANCIAL SECURITY.  TO READ THE GUIDE--AND FOR MORE INFORMATION--VISIT "EARNED-A-SAY"-DOT-ORG.
