We owe it to our children and grandchildren to reduce our nation’s deficit and improve our nation’s economy. But not at the expense of the Medicare and Social Security benefits that seniors deserve and have earned. These programs are social insurance – investments in the future of our nation and the well-being of our fellow citizens. Our seniors deserve policies that protect these benefits, not undermine them.
I have consistently introduced legislation that will not only strengthen Social Security, but expand it. I have also opposed efforts to raise the retirement age for Social Security and have fought back attempts to privatize Medicare.
I will continue working to strengthen and improve these programs, so future generations can move into their retirement years with a sense of security.
