Congressman Yarmuth is a strong advocate for our nation's seniors, fighting for their safety, healthcare, and financial security. He believes improving and preserving Medicare is crucial to protecting our seniors and has sought for lower prescription drug prices and expanded health benefits.

Using Louisville's ElderServe as a model, Congressman Yarmuth has introduced legislation that will create Emergency Crisis Response Teams (ECRT) to coordinate and expand services for elder abuse victims. The program has been incredibly effective in Louisville, bringing various entities together to immediately help elder abuse victims and provide a continuum of care.

As more baby-boomers reach retirement age, Congressman Yarmuth understands Social Security protection and preservation is critically important, and he is continuing to fight privatization which will put the program's solvency at risk.

America is built by the generations that came before us, and Congressman Yarmuth is fighting to ensure that all of our nation's seniors are able to enjoy a safe and secure retirement.
