Where would our benefits be without the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare? For 34 years, this committee has been fighting for our benefits and winning to help citizens get what they rightly deserve and keep them. Our benefits that we depend on to pay might have been greatly reduced by all different ways without this watchdog committee's guidance.
The battle to preserve our benefits continues with great urgency. Right now, the 115th Congress is targeting Social Security and Medicare deficits and funding tax breaks for the wealthy who don't need any money increases. Each attempt was stopped by the National Committee to preserve Social Security and Medicare. I'm so happy for this committee that watches over the laws that directly affect me and others like me. I need Social Security and Medicare to pay my bills. For 34 years of my fighting and winning, my modest lifestyle is protected by this national committee. I am truly grateful.
