KEEPING AMERICA’S PROMISE TO SENIORS
David is fighting to strengthen Social Security and Medicare for our seniors. Each year he holds Senior Security and Wellness Expos across the Third District. The expos serve as one-stop-shops where seniors can access resources available to them from federal, state, and local governments, as well as private entities.
When visiting each of the Third District’s 16 counties, David continues to hear from Iowa seniors about the important work of the Senior Health Insurance Program, or SHIP. So when a government spending bill would have cut SHIP funding, David got to work to protect Iowa seniors. As Iowa’s only voice on the Appropriations Committee, David worked with his colleagues in a bipartisan way to restore SHIP funding so seniors can better navigate their Social Security and Medicare benefits.
Despite claims made by liberals, David has never voted to privatize Social Security or Medicare and has never voted to cut or weaken Social Security and Medicare benefits.
Iowa seniors worked for and earned Social Security and Medicare benefits and David believes Congress must protect and strengthen them. David will continue to deliver protections for Iowa seniors as he has done throughout his service in Congress.
