Protecting Medicare and Social Security For Those Who’ve Earned It
Jamie believes that we should preserve and strengthen Social Security without endangering the benefits seniors have earned after a lifetime of work. He’ll work to remove the cap on Social Security taxes because teachers, small businesspeople and janitors shouldn’t pay a higher tax rate than CEOs. Jamie will not only work to prevent cuts, but to expand the value of Social Security benefits to seniors.
Instead of letting special-interest lobbyists have their way with Congress and rip off taxpayers, Jamie will fight to see that the government starts negotiating for prescription drug prices under Medicare, just like it does with Medicaid and the VA. That change alone will save billions of dollars a year for the Medicare program that millions of American seniors count on.
