Medicare is a promise to our seniors. Millions of seniors across the country rely on it to pay for visits to the doctor, fill their prescriptions and provide the medical resources they need.
Yet Republicans in Congress are pushing legislation that would end Medicare as we know it, force seniors to pay more out of their pockets and, ultimately, do nothing to address skyrocketing health costs.
There’s widespread agreement that slowing the growth of Medicare spending is essential to reducing the federal deficit and preserving Medicare. The cause of Medicare’s increasing costs lies with a failing health care delivery system.
