French Hill on Social Security

 

 


Keep our promises, and enhance 401k's & reverse mortgages

Social Security and Medicare are promises between the federal government and the hard-working Americans who have paid into these programs over the years. Since 1935, American workers have contributed to Social Security. This valuable program provides many seniors with a reliable pension. However, lack of government oversight and frequent abuse has weakened this program. Through strong leadership and common sense, I believe we can strengthen Social Security for today's seniors and future beneficiaries

I support policies that help hard-working Americans save for retirement and health care independent of government aid. We must enhance 401(K)'s, IRA's, and health savings accounts so seniors can have security and peace of mind. We should protect and promote the FHA's successful reverse mortgage program, which offers seniors increased liquidity based on the years of accumulated equity. However, these meaningful improvements will only matter if we control Washington's spending addiction.
