The head of an advocacy group representing millions of retired Americans criticized the Republican Party platform, calling it “badly out of touch” with American workers and retirees.

Edward Coyle, executive director of the Alliance for Retired Americans, said in a statement Monday that the GOP policy platform would reverse 50 years of success in the Medicare program by cutting benefits, delaying eligibility, and urging seniors to move toward private coverage.
