Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid
We must keep the promise of Social Security to beneficiaries and those nearing retirement. Program costs are soon projected to exceed revenue, shrinking the trust fund, and threatening the future of Social Security and quality of life for future retirees. Insolvency is projected by 2035. I will fight for Social Security sustainability.
As more Baby Boomers enroll in Medicare, it too is facing serious challenges. Insolvency of the program is projected by 2026 — less than ten years from now — leaving younger Americans uncertain about their future health.
These programs are essential to the financial security of our community and I will fight to protect their solvency and sustainability.
