Rev. dr. Janis c. Brooks for 18th Pennsylvania congressional district
Every society is judged by how well it protects its seniors, and its weak and vulnerable population. Among these groups, our seniors in particular have already earned the right to expect, or indeed demand our support. It is in our own self-interest as people who aspire to greater longevity to promote policies that protect and support our seniors.
These include well-developed programs to secure their health, guard and increase their incomes, and provide for their physical safety. This is why I support policies that strengthen Social Security and protect Medicare.
