Seniors And Social Security
As a doctor who's cared for countless seniors, I'm committed to honoring the promises we've made to our parents and grandparents. We need to make sure our seniors can access the support and health care they need in a secure and dignified retirement.
Around Sacramento County, I've met with many seniors who are trying to make ends meet on fixed incomes - struggling to pay for their groceries while affording lifesaving prescription drugs. But even while facing challenges in retirement, many continue to make terrific contributions to our region through community service or by helping raise their grandkids. Our seniors are continuing to do their part after a lifetime of hard work and sacrifice. We have an obligation to be there for them, too.
Especially after paying into Social Security and Medicare throughout their working lives, today's seniors and future generations should be able to rely on these promises when they need it.
