DULUTH - Seniors got a chance to discuss how the "fiscal cliff" would impact them.
Seniors gathered at the Rainbow Senior Center to talk about federal budget issues at a forum Monday.
Organizers from a group called "The Action" were there to discuss how negotiations could potentially affect Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid benefits.
"They need to get this done and we're asking Congress to listen to their constituents," The Action organizer Jackie Halberg said. "Sixty-seven percent of Americans have agreed that they do need to raise taxes on the top two-percent and preserve those tax cuts for the middle class."
People from "The Action" campaign said that raising taxes for the nation's highest earners would bring in enough revenue to prevent cuts to programs like Social Security.
