We made a commitment to our seniors that they would not be abandoned. As a beacon of civilization, America cannot forget its elders when tackling issues like healthcare and financial security.
We made this commitment in the form of Medicare and Social Security: vital programs ensuring our seniors are cared for after years of hard work.
These esteemed seniors endured the Great Depression, fought in World War II, the Korean War, are dependent upon these programs and those who survived Vietnam are soon to join them. It is not only our responsibility but our duty to ensure our seniors continue to receive the care and assistance they worked so hard for.
