For 45 years, Medicare has provided health care to seniors. Medicare spends our resources wisely and allows seniors to live with dignity. We want to expand this program by supporting national legislation that would deliver Medicare to everyone (HR 676). In California, we campaign for SB 810, the California Universal Health care Act.
But Medicare is under attack from Wall St.
A National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform has been selected to weaken Medicare and Social Security. The Commission is being financed by Wall St. investor Peter Peterson. You are invited to a discussion on how to protect Medicare and Social Security.
