Iowans work hard our entire life and deserve the retirement benefits earned. I am appalled by our so-called “elected leaders” in both parties that are clinging to an unsustainable status quo because they do not have the courage to secure America’s health and retirement security programs for future generations.  

That’s why I support Social Security and Medicare.  I oppose cuts just like you do. Current and future retirees deserve better than empty promises.  

Unfortunately, deteriorating financial conditions have left these programs vulnerable.  The most recent report from the Social Security and Medicare Trustees indicates that Medicare will be insolvent by 2028 and that Social Security will be insolvent by 2035.  Neither of these outcomes are acceptable.   

As your Member of Congress, I will do everything in my power to both defend these programs and ensure their future solvency.
