PROTECTING AMERICA'S SENIOR CITIZENS

Congressman King is a strong supporter of preserving Social Security and providing expanded prescription drug coverage for senior citizens. Pete also works hard for legislation to make elder abuse a federal crime so that we can protect the hundreds of thousands of elderly Americans who are exploited, abused or neglected each year. Pete would also require background checks for health care workers and setting up data bases for elder abuse, similar to the registries we now have for child abuse.
