Reed Sits Down with Seniors About Social Security, Medicare
Rep. Tom Reed sat down with local seniors at the Friendly's Restaurant to discuss their concerns over the future of Social Security and Medicare.
“We care about those on Social Security and Medicare, and enjoyed engaging in a fair, open and honest conversation about preserving these programs for future generations,” Tom said. “We appreciate the input received today and look forward to carrying their voices back to Washington.”
"Thank you Congressman Reed for an educational meeting with the senior citizens regarding Medicare and Social Security," Rehana Stanley of Lowman said. "Your input is greatly appreciated."
Medicare and Social Security are expected to run out of money by 2026 and 2034, respectively. Tom raised a sense of urgency to pass bipartisan reforms to ensure funding for future generations and to give people time to plan for possible changes. In addition, to help families that are making sacrifices and struggling to take care of their aging parents, or grandparents, Tom has introduced the Credit for Caring Act to provide a tax credit for care giving expenses incurred by family members.
