Protecting Social Security and Medicare

Social Security and Medicare are earned benefits, a promise that older adults paid into during their lifetimes. There are some politicians in Washington who want to privatize Social Security and Medicare, and let Wall Street gamble with your hard earned money and take millions in fees. We can’t risk putting these programs through the ups and downs of the stock market.

I will never vote to privatize Social Security or Medicare. We must protect these vital programs for our older adults. I believe we must reduce the deficit, however, we must never balance the budget on the backs of hardworking older adults that rely on social security and Medicare for their retirement.
