Giving our kūpuna the dignity and security in retirement they deserve by protecting and expanding Social Security and Medicare.
Doug fought to protect elderly consumers from being taken advantage of by unscrupulous health care providers and predatory long-term care schemes. And he believes all kūpuna deserve to enjoy retirement with dignity and security. As a Member of the U.S. House of Representatives, he will:
Push for increasing Social Security’s guaranteed benefits.
Reject any cuts to Social Security benefits through efforts to raise the retirement age, lower cost of living adjustments, or by introducing means testing.
Work to protect and strengthen Medicare’s lifesaving benefits.
Support policies to make prescription drugs more affordable by empowering the federal government to negotiate lower prescription drug prices for Medicare beneficiaries.
