Congressman Yarmuth is a strong advocate for the safety, healthcare, and financial security of our nation's seniors. He believes improving and preserving Medicare is crucial to protecting our seniors, and he strongly supports the Affordable Care Act, which has already extended the life of Medicare by seven years and significantly lowered costs and strengthened care for more than 84,000 Louisville seniors.

With more baby-boomers reaching retirement age, Congressman Yarmuth understands that Social Security protection and preservation are critically important. He is continuing to fight against efforts to privatize the program and risk the retirement security of our nation’s seniors. As a member of the Budget Committee, Congressman Yarmuth is a leading voice against Republican efforts not only to privatize Social Security, but also to end the Medicare guarantee and convert that program into a voucher system.
