The War on Seniors

Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer has spoken out against Republicans’ ‘War on Seniors.’

Trump’s recent pick for Secretary of Health & Human Services, Rep. Tom Price, an outspoken Medicare opponent from Georgia, has Schumer calling on all Americans to band together to fight back. Schumer says that the nomination of Price, along with threats from Republicans to privatize Medicare, is making it apparent that Washington Republicans are waging a war against seniors.

Particularly important is the battle to save 5 Senate seats in conservative states in 2018. Protecting these seats will give strength in numbers to the Democrats’ fight against Republican-proposed changes to Medicare’s single-payer system.

Regardless of the outcome of the 2018 U.S. Senate elections, Schumer has vowed to not let Republicans privatize Medicare and hopes that seniors and all Americans will continue to make it known that the our seniors deserve guaranteed healthcare benefits.
