America made a promise to protect the health and well-being of its seniors. Dan will work to ensure that America keeps that promise to South Dakota seniors. Over the years, our parents and grand-parents have contributed into Social Security and Medicare so they could have a secure retirement that includes health care.
Many South Dakota seniors rely on Social Security as a key source of income. Dan opposes legislation weakening Social Security or efforts to gamble seniors’ retirement security in the stock market.
Medicare is also a solemn promise made to South Dakota’s seniors. Recently, Washington politicians proposed cutting over 800 billion dollars from Medicare. Dan opposes these proposed cuts. Dan also opposes efforts to change Medicare as we know it and turn it into a voucher system.
