Medicare and Social Security
Medicare has been a solemn promise our country has made to our seniors for generations: work hard, pay your taxes and we will ensure the health care you’ve earned is there for you when you need it most. I will fight to keep that promise for both current and future generations.
To ensure Medicare’s long-term financial stability, I support the implementation of common sense reforms like switching to electronic medical records to lower costs and better coordinate services. I believe it is important to use Medicare’s negotiating power to get better prices, especially regarding prescription drug costs.
I strongly oppose the privatization of Social Security or any other attempt to cut guaranteed benefits. Social Security is a critically important bedrock of retirement for so many seniors in our region and I will fight to protect and preserve it.
