"I will stand up to anyone who attempts to cut funding to Medicare and Social Security..." -- Joyce Beatty
Joyce Beatty will continue to advocate for full funding of Social Security. She believes that Social Security is an American success story and safe guard's Americans' economic security and allows for independence of older Americans and the disabled.
Recently on a trip to Washington, Joyce Beatty met with the Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare. She discussed ways to make improvements to the systems and how we can continue to fund it well into the future.
Joyce Beatty understands that some of the issues facing Social Security will be long-term challenges and should not be met with short term crisis management. Raising the age limit on Social Security is not the answer. It is time to put partisan politics of Washington aside and work together to address these challenges allowing the government to keep its commitment to our older Americans and people with disabilities.
