Joe Kyrillos on Social Security
For those under 55, Joe would take up the bi-partisan Simpson-Bowles Commission plan to strengthen Social Security and Medicare. We should gradually raise the retirement age to 67 by 2027. For everyone over 55 today, the retirement age would stay at 65. Second, we should gradually increase benefits for all Americans but allow smaller increases for the wealthiest Americans. Third, we should reform Medicare cost-sharing with a consumer-driven approach that puts patients and their loved ones in the driver's seat. Finally, we should eliminate Medicare fraud and reduce excessive Medicare payments to hospitals for medical education. These reforms will strengthen Social Security and Medicare for generations to come.
