Protecting Medicare and Social Security for current beneficiaries and saving it for future generations is one of my most important responsibilities as your Representative in Congress. The report released in April by the Medicare and Social Security Trustees showed that Social Security will go broke in 2033, three years earlier than previously expected. The report also showed the Medicare Hospital Insurance Trust Fund will go broke in 2024. Clearly, the days of burying our heads in the sand and pretending the status quo is acceptable must end.

We must enact long term solutions to protect Medicare and Social Security for current and future beneficiaries in a way that does not impact anyone at or near retirement or eligibility age, which is exactly what is called for in the House-approved budget. Remember, the Democrat-controlled Senate has not even bothered to pass a budget in over three years.
