Seniors Task Force Statement on the 2018 Medicare and Social Security Trustees Reports

Today, Seniors Task Force Co-Chairs Rep. Jan Schakowsky and Rep. Doris Matsui released the following statement in response to the 2018 Social Security and Medicare Trustees Reports:

“The Trustees’ reports make it clear that the Republican tax scam directly threatens the Medicare program, reducing its solvency by three years. The tax scam comes at the expense of seniors and American families –taking funding from Medicare in order to give even more tax breaks to millionaires and billionaires. 

“Republicans have broken the fundamental promise we made to Americans that Social Security and Medicare will be there to provide health care and benefits for their families who deserve to have the peace of mind that their loved ones can retire with dignity. The Seniors Task Force will continue to fight back against efforts to weaken Medicare and Social Security. Families have earned these benefits, and the GOP’s attacks on families cannot go unchallenged.”
