Social Security & Medicare

Here's my commitment to Florida; I will preserve and protect Social Security and Medicare for those who are currently receiving benefits and for future retirees. We will not touch benefits for anyone who is currently in retirement or approaching retirement.

We know that Medicare and Social Security cannot continue in their current form. People of good faith know the question is how, not if, we reform these programs. We must make both programs solvent over the long term. We can’t keep kicking the can down the road, hoping the next Congress or the next generation will have the political courage we lack.
