Senior Citizens

Social Security and Medicare represent a solemn promise to those who worked all their lives and paid into the system will retire with the dignity they deserve. While many in Congress believe we should cut benefits to save the system, I believe we should raise the cap at which the wealthiest among us stop paying into the system, and use those resources to increase the solvency of the system and increase benefits.

I also support provisions in the Affordable Care Act that provide free preventive care for seniors, save them money on prescription medication, and close the Medicare Part D “donut hole”.
