The Arbours at Eagle Pointe was envisioned as an “older adults” community from the first day its developers pitched their plans to the Somerton Civic Association about a decade ago. But 55 and older folks aren’t the only dominant demographic among the hundreds of inhabitants.
The development has a large percentage of military veterans, too.
Washington, DC- Today, Congressman Brendan Boyle (PA-13) joined Chairman of the House Democratic Caucus Congressman Xavier Becerra (CA-34), Congressman Lloyd Doggett (TX-35), Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky (IL-09), Congresswoman Doris Matsui (CA-06), Social Security Disability beneficiary and advocate Susan Flashman, and Max Richtman of the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare to announce new legislation that will ensure that all Americans receive their earned Social Security despite Republican gamesmanship.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Brendan Boyle (D-PA-13) issued the following statement on the Older Americans Act which was signed into law on July 14, 1965:
“Today is the 50th anniversary of the Older Americans Act, an important law that guarantees that Older Americans who have worked hard, raised families, and kept our country strong should be able to live with dignity and independence. The Older Americans Act helps them do that by providing critical services to millions of senior citizens and their families.”
