Pete's Plan

For Seniors

Protecting Social Security and Medicare

Medicare and Social Security are vital to the health and welfare of older Americans in San Bernardino County and throughout our nation. I have fought Republican efforts to turn Medicare into a voucher program, which would force seniors to shop for health insurance on the private market and pay thousands more in out-of-pocket expenses for the same level of coverage.

I’m committed to protecting Social Security and cosponsored legislation affirming that Social Security should be preserved, protected and expanded. My annual Senior Fairs have connected hundreds of Inland Empire seniors with vital resources in our community and I will continue advocating for policies that reaffirm our promise that all Americans can retire with the dignity and respect they deserve.
