Keeping Our Commitments to Seniors
Idahoans want to ensure that their aging loved ones will continue to be cared for throughout their lives. In the same way, all Americans want to make sure that their children and grandchildren inherit a better nation and world. I know that senior citizens depend on programs like Medicare and Social Security and reducing or eliminating benefits for senior citizens is not an option.
However, if we don’t do something to significantly reform programs like Medicare and Social Security, our children and grandchildren, many of whom are working today and investing in these programs, won’t see any benefits from this investment. We must take the steps necessary to ensure that these crucial programs continue to provide a safety net to those in need and security to those who depend on them in their daily lives.
