Issue Position: Medicare

Issue Position

Millions of Americans rely on Medicare every day, yet under this current Congress, Republicans have voted to privatize and gut Medicare, which would end the Medicare guarantee as we know it. I know personally the value of Medicare for seniors -- like millions of other retired Americans, my mom and dad, Margaret and Jack, count on it for their health care needs. In Congress, I continue to fight against any plan that tries to eliminate or privatize Medicare. Our seniors have earned their Medicare benefits, and I believe it is fundamentally wrong to take these away from them or future generations.
