Retired Miners Are in Danger of Losing Their Health Care

Retired mine workers visited their representatives earlier this month because nearly 89,000 retired mine workers and their families could lose their health care and pensions if Congress doesn't act by April 30. Coal miners did the hard, dangerous work that helped our country prosper following World War II and in return, we, as a country, promised to take care of their health care and retirement for their service. Now the retired mine workers are simply asking Congress to keep their promise and pass the Miners Protection Act before time runs out.
