Protecting Seniors

As a Member of Congress, Jessica will always fight for Pinellas County’s seniors, and she will oppose all efforts to dismantle or weaken Medicare and Social Security.

Medicare

Jessica believes we must look for bipartisan, long-term solutions to ensure that seniors have access to quality care and affordable prescription drugs. In Congress, Jessica will fight any attempt to weaken Medicare. She will make certain no senior ever has to choose between a loaf of bread, a gallon of milk, or life-saving medications.

Social Security

Jessica’s experience working with the Social Security Subcommittee of the House Committee on Ways and Means makes her a passionate defender of the program. She understands that Social Security is the foundation our seniors depend upon – one they have earned after a lifetime of hard work.
Threatening Social Security for political gain is a dangerous game for the millions of Americans who rely on this vital program. As a Member of Congress, Jessica will vehemently fight efforts to weaken Social Security. Like she has done before, Jessica will work with her colleagues on both sides of the aisle to keep the program solvent. Privatization and benefit cuts would only weaken this critical social safety net and throw millions of seniors into poverty. We cannot balance the budget on the backs of seniors.
