Seniors

As a nation, we have a moral obligation to care for our seniors. It is critical that we preserve and protect the social safety net that ensures our seniors are well cared for.

Medicare

John believes that Medicare should not be privatized or scaled back. He will support legislation that would allow Medicare to negotiate with pharmaceutical companies to drive down drug costs. By bringing down the costs of prescription drugs and medical care, Medicare will be able to provide better quality care to patients at lower costs.

Social Security

Seniors depend on Social Security, a program they have paid into throughout their lives. Although Social Security will continue to be solvent for at least two decades, future generations will face serious funding problems if changes are not made. If we act now, we can preserve Social Security for future generations without making unnecessary cuts to benefits. It is also important that we do not put seniors at risk by privatizing this program.
