Protecting Our Seniors
Social Security and Medicare are contracts made with our seniors - we must keep our promises and commitments to older Americans.
The fact is, Medicare is growing at an alarming rate of 7.25% a year. We must work to ensure Medicare remains solvent for today’s seniors and future generations of Americans.
I support the following legislation:
- H.R. 2576: to amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to modify the calculation of modified adjusted gross income for purposes of determining eligibility for certain healthcare-related programs (pass House)
- H.R. 1173: Fiscal Responsibility and Retirement Security Act of 2011 (pass House)
- H.R. 6685: Spending Reduction Act (pass House)
