Retirement Security plays a critical role in the overall health of our economy. Joel lives with his mother-in-law, a retiree, and is fully committed to ensuring that she receives all the benefits that she has both earned and deserves.
Joel will be a tireless advocate in Congress for protecting and expanding Social Security benefits for our seniors and future generations. He will stand up against Republican attempts to privatize or make cuts to Social Security and Medicare – programs that so many seniors in our district rely on for income and healthcare.
We can strengthen retirement security for all Americans by taking a few common-sense steps:
- Remove the Social Security tax cap that is preventing high-income earners from paying their fair share.
- Give the U.S. government negotiating power over prescription drug prices with pharmaceutical companies.
- Make sure the Affordable Care Act continues to close the Medicare Part D coverage gap known as the “donut hole” so that seniors are covered year-round.
