Seniors

Taking care of those who took care of us

You can tell a lot about a society by the way they care for their seniors and elderly. The vast majority of seniors are plummeted into poverty once they retire. After decades of working hard, providing for their families, raising children and grandchildren, they deserve to be taken care of in their twilight years.

Social security has not been properly managed in decades. We deduct Medicare premiums from their Social Security checks! They already spent decades paying into Social Security and Medicare. It’s their money. We should not be charging them for the privilege of using Medicare which they have already paid for over their decades of working.

We need to provide more access to health care products and service for our seniors. They deserve the very best. Social Security and Medicare are not government handouts. Our seniors have spent decades investing their hard-earned money into these programs on the promise that the money would be there for them. They put their faith and trust in us and we cannot fail them now.

I have a plan to tackle this abomination of theft. My plan will not only make Medicare sustainable, but also provide a pathway to make Medicare premium-free within 10 years so our honored seniors will no longer be charged premiums. It will also ensure that Medicare will be around for centuries, not just a few years or decades. Investing in our seniors is investing in our future. After all, God willing, every one of us will be seniors one day. Protecting Social Security and Medicare today means protecting Social Security and Medicare for you, your children, and for future generations to come.

My plan is ready to be introduced on Day One. Sending me to Washington is sending a champion to fight for our seniors!

Freedom Health Plan (Solution):  Although this plan is for everyone, it provides a pathway to ensure the solvency of Medicare.  Our seniors should not have to live with the fear that their healthcare program is on the verge of bankruptcy.  This provides that peace of mind that Medicare will not only be there for all the remaining years of their lives, but for generations to come.  Also, this plan makes it possible to begin the process of decreasing Medicare premiums that are taken out of the Social Security checks of our seniors, giving them back more of their own money without reducing any of their healthcare benefits.

Dental & Vision for Seniors:  Although dental and vision is usually not covered under Medicare Part B, it is often covered under Medicare Advantage (Part C) plans.  Once elected, my official Congressional website will have user-friendly information for our Seniors to find an affordable (some at no cost) Medicare Advantage Plan to ensure that all of the Seniors in my district are covered for dental and vision.  My staff will also reach out to the seniors in our district to ensure that they are getting these vital benefits.  I plan to also hold informational meetings throughout the district on a regular basis to ensure that our seniors are aware of the low-cost and no-cost plans to ensure that they are getting these critical services.
