Congressman Yarmuth is a strong advocate for our nation's seniors, fighting for their safety, health care, and financial security.
He believes improving and preserving Medicare is crucial to protecting our seniors and strongly supports the Affordable Care Act, which extended the life of Medicare to 2024 - and is already significantly lowering costs and strengthening care for more than 84,000 Louisville seniors.
With more baby-boomers reaching retirement age, Congressman Yarmuth understands Social Security protection and preservation is critically important, and he is continuing to fight against privatization that will put the program's solvency at risk. As a member of the Budget Committee, Congressman Yarmuth has strongly opposed Republican efforts to end the Medicare guarantee and convert Medicare into a voucher system.
America is built by the generations that came before us, and Congressman Yarmuth is fighting to ensure that all of our nation's seniors are able to rely on the guarantee of Medicare and Social Security and enjoy a safe and secure retirement.
