Strengthen Social Security
Provide all seniors with full Medicare insurance coverage
Increase affordable senior housing
I will work to strengthen Social Security and preserve the system into which workers have paid all their lives. I will ensure that the security of our retirees is not privatized and turned over to Wall Street. We must provide all seniors with full Medicare insurance coverage to reduce out-of-pocket costs, especially the prescription drug “donut hole,” which strains limited and fixed incomes. Senior housing is often too expensive or too scarce. Thus, I will work to increase the funding for and availability of affordable, appropriate housing. We must support our seniors and assure that their golden years are safe, comfortable, and secure.
