Medicare & Social Security

Georgians should be able to count on the Social Security and Medicare benefits for which they’ve worked. However, the current structures of these programs are unsustainable. According to the non-partisan Medicare Board of Trustees, the Medicare program as currently structured will only remain solvent until 2024, and the Social Security Administration projects that funds for Social Security benefits will be exhausted by 2037.

Without meaningful reform, these programs will lead to higher taxes on American workers and job-creators, fewer retiree benefits, or both. Improving retirement security means making reforms that protect current recipients while ensuring benefits are available to future recipients. We can prevent tax increases and help ensure that Social Security and Medicare will be available to our children and grandchildren by putting responsible policies in place to guide these programs into the future.
