Rep. Lipinski Receives Leadership Award for Standing Up for America's Seniors

Congressman Dan Lipinski (IL-3) has been chosen by the over 400,000 members of the RetireSafe organization to receive their “Standing Up for America’s Seniors” Leadership Award.  The award is presented to a small group of elected officials each year who have distinguished themselves through various actions that benefit seniors throughout the nation, now and in the future.  RetireSafe is a nonpartisan organization.

“I take great pride in looking out for the interests of the Third District's senior citizens while on Capitol Hill, and stand ready to help them cut through bureaucratic red tape at home to get the services they need when they need them,” said Rep. Lipinski.  “My office has helped countless seniors get answers and solve problems involving Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, Veterans' benefits, the Postal Service, and many other federal issues.  I also host Senior Fairs throughout the year to give seniors a chance to get assistance with a variety of issues from my staff, as well as local organizations, agencies, and businesses.”

Rep. Lipinski is receiving the award for his proactive efforts to finally establish an accurate consumer price index (CPI) upon which fair and equitable cost-of-living adjustments (COLAs) may be calculated for Social Security beneficiaries and military retirees.  The RetireSafe organization is also appreciative of his co-sponsorship of H.R. 523, the “Protect Medical Innovation Act,” a critical measure for Medicare beneficiaries and patients of all ages, and his sponsorship of H.R. 2853, the “Hospital Price Transparency and Disclosure Act,” an important bill for hospital patients.
