Social Security and Medicare are extremely important for American seniors. We must safeguard the benefits for current beneficiaries and those approaching eligibility while protecting these programs for future generations. As we go forward with solutions, I believe we need to focus on incremental program changes for future recipients now aged 55 and under, ensuring benefits will be available to them when they reach enrollment age while keeping the promise to those currently relying on retirement income and Medicare coverage. It is imperative we make changes now. The longer we wait to address the issue, the more severe the remedy will have to be. I am committed to finding the right path that protects these valuable programs not only for our current seniors but for generations to come.
