CONGRESSMAN MARTY MEEHAN (D-MASS.) TO HOST CONCORD'S NEW EXERCISE ON ENTITLEMENT REFORM

WASHINGTON -- Congressman Marty Meehan (D-Mass.) will host the Concord Coalition's new interactive entitlement exercise, Just Generations, at Concord-Carlisle (Mass.) High School on Monday, Jan. 12, at 7:00 p.m.

Just Generations participants will assume the role of citizen-members of a Presidential Commission appointed to recommend ways to keep Social Security and Medicare sustainable over the long term. Working in small groups, participants will discuss options for reform and recommend changes to avert the crises entitlement programs will face when the Baby Boom generation begins retiring in the next decade.

Just Generations is part of the Concord Coalition's Paul E. Tsongas Project, designed to allow Americans from all walks of life, all ages, and all political persuasions to engage in a public debate about the generational implications of retirement policy, including Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid.

The public is invited to participate in this interactive exercise. For more information, contact Rep. Meehan's office at (978) 459-0101 or the Concord Coalition's New England regional office at (617) 542-6088.
