Brad Schneider on Social Security
I will work tirelessly in Congress to prevent the privatization of Social Security, insulating it from the kind of financial gambling that precipitated our current economic downturn.
The seniors who helped to build our families and our towns should be guaranteed access to affordable, quality health care. In Congress, I will work to protect Medicare from the right-wing Ryan Budget's attempts to convert the program to a risky, expensive voucher plan. Republicans want to end the Medicare guarantee that our seniors have counted on for years, leaving our seniors practically on their own with major healthcare decisions and costs.
Scoring system for 2014: Ranges from 0% (supports privatization and other market-based reforms) to 100% (supports keeping federal control over Trust Fund and Social Security system).
