Ensuring Care For Seniors

I will always protect Social Security and Medicare, ensuring our government keeps the promises it has made to current retirees and those planning to retire.  I absolutely do not support cutting benefits for current retirees or anybody nearing retirement.  In order to accomplish difficult objectives in times of crisis, I know that we must work together. So, I will continue to be a leading voice for addressing the critical solvency issue of Social Security and Medicare in a bipartisan way that protects care for seniors.

Our accomplishments include:

  • No cuts to Medicare
  • Passing legislation to strengthen Medicare
  • Voting to protect social security beneficiaries
  • Securing a new law to crack down on crimes targeting seniors
  • Protecting tax benefits for retirement savings
  • Writing a new law to protect benefits like nursing home care for veterans
  • Serving as a member of the Congressional Task Force on Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Increasing support for Alzheimer’s patients
