Issue Position: Medicare

Issue Position

Date: Jan. 1, 2018

I am committed to standing up for our seniors and preserving Medicare in order to meet their health care needs. Promises made must be promises kept, therefore the plan I support to keep the program sustainable would not change Medicare for anyone who is 55 years of age and older.

We need to act now to stop Medicare from going bankrupt. I voted in favor of preserving and protecting Medicare with true choice and competition for future generations, while also eliminating waste, fraud, and abuse in the system

Medicare is a large and growing part of the federal budget, with millions of retirees relying on the program for their healthcare.
