Seniors Rally Against McMahon
About 20 protesters, most of them senior citizens, demonstrated at Linda McMahon’s campaign headquarters in North Haven on Monday against what they say is the Republican U.S. Senate candidate's desire to "sunset" Social Security and Medicare.
The protesters said they were reacting to comments McMahon made at a Tea Party forum in Waterford where she proposed adding a "sunset provision" to the Social Security Act.
