I have worked to preserve Social Security, strengthen pensions and improve Medicare since I first came to
Congress in 1996. My steadfast opposition to efforts to privatize Social Security and a commitment to improve Medicare benefits have earned me a 100-percent rating from the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare. My voting record is rated 100% by AARP. All Americans should seek a comfortable retirement including IRA's, 401(k)'s and similar accounts. However, any sound retirement plan starts with an inflation-adjusted lifetime annuity -- a monthly check for life that you cannot lose, and you cannot outlive. This is what Social Security provides. We should not replace a guarantee with a gamble. I will fight plans to privatize Social Security or turn Medicare into a voucher program.
