Seniors and Veterans
Our population is rapidly aging and on a federal level battles are being waged every day by the insurance companies, pharmaceutical companies, and employers that try to take away from our seniors hard earned dollars. Our seniors are now living on fixed social security or retirement incomes and a small change in any area (insurance costs, taxation, income reduction or the cost of medicines) has a huge impact on their standard of living. We must also consider the large population of retired veterans and current military personnel who’s issues must be addressed and they be compensated for their dedication to service. I will stand up and fight for the issues our seniors and veterans face today. They have earned the right to a comfortable retirement without having to worry about how they are going to make ends meet.
