Steven Horsford on Social Security

 

 


Say no to privatizing Social Security and ending Medicare

Steven has a simple answer for Republicans who want to privatize Social Security and end Medicare as we know it: No.

For the first 27 years of Steven's life, he visited his grandmother every week in a nursing home. Steven knows the difference between quality care and substandard care. Our seniors have spent their entire lives working hard and deserve peace of mind that their retirement will be secure. Social Security and Medicare are promises America made and programs that seniors paid into.
