For decades, Washington insiders have been talking about fixing Social Security and Medicare. All throughout my life, I’ve heard politicians discuss their “plan” to fix and reform these programs, and ensure they are viable and solvent.
But none of these plans have come to fruition. Insider politicians, such as Rep. Pingree, don’t have the appetite for making changes, and ensuring that we protect these programs. There’s no shortage of ideas on how to fix Social Security and Medicare – what we are lacking is leadership in Washington, and elected officials who are committed to tackling the tough issues. In Congress, I’ll help address the problems with Social Security and Medicare, and lead the effort to ensure our seniors receive the help they deserve.
Millions of Americans are depending, and will depend upon these programs so that they can age with dignity. It is imperative that we make adjustments to these programs future generations can enjoy these programs, and utilize them to their full potential. I know it will take strong leadership – but I am committed to being the effective Representative who secures and protects our future.
