Protecting Medicare and Social Security
Medicare and Social Security provide millions of Texas seniors with critical health care benefits and retirement security. Texans have paid into them and have worked hard to earn these benefits. While Washington politicians threaten to cut these critical programs to finance tax cuts for the very wealthy, Candace is committed to protecting Medicare and Social Security for this generation and the next. Candace knows what it’s like to struggle to pay the bills and afford the high costs of medical care, and she will stand with Texas seniors to make sure our government keeps its promises to them.
In Congress, Candace will:
- Oppose all cuts to our seniors’ Medicare and Social Security benefits
- Oppose privatization of either program
- Work with both parties to ensure both programs are adequately funded for future generations
