Issue Position: Protecting Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid

Issue Position

Social Security is a sacred contract between every American worker. Privatizing Social Security would endanger America's seniors by exposing them to risks that were not part of the deal. Privatizing Social Security would be just plain wrong, and I would forcefully oppose any efforts to do so.

I would also fight any attempt to reduce the funding and effectiveness of Medicare or Medicaid. I led the Medicaid expansion effort in Arizona because I believe firmly in the program's effectiveness. These programs are critical for millions of Americans and there is no way it will be weakened on my watch.
