Social Security & Medicare
Ensuring the promise to our seniors.
I will oppose any change to Social Security and Medicare that will negatively impact our seniors.
Seniors today are under an unacceptable strain – with Medicare costs continuing to rise and a Congress that’s intent on undermining Social Security.
The single biggest and most immediate threat to Social Security is not solvency, but rather the continual assault on the program by those that wish to privatize it, means test it, or divert it into pet programs. House Republicans want to change the way Social Security is provided and make drastic cuts to the program.
Social Security is a promise that must be kept and Democrats and Republicans must work together to maintain the program’s long-term solvency.
The recent Republican attack on Medicare - attempting to force seniors to shop on the open market for health care coverage - must be vigorously opposed.
I believe America is stronger for having Medicare and will oppose any attack on this program.
