Social Security + Medicare

Mel believes that if you work hard your whole life, you should have the resources to retire with dignity. He is committed to protecting Medicare and Social Security and opposes all efforts to end Medicare’s guaranteed benefits or to privatize Social Security.

Social Security and Medicare are a sacred promise to our nation’s Seniors. These programs form the foundation for most seniors’ retirements. Congress has an obligation to protect Social Security and Medicare so that seniors can have a honorable retirement. Mel opposes any attempt to weaken these crucial programs, including the privatization of Social Security.
