The Latest News on Social Security and Medicare

The Democratic incumbent got an official endorsement from the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare for her support of Social Security and Medicare in the Senate.

The National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare was joined by Congressional leaders and our allies in the fight for women’s rights in a media teleconference held on Thursday, October 9th. We launched our new project, “Eleanor’s Hope” named in honor of Eleanor Roosevelt, to mobilize women of all ages to advocate for income equality, income security and health protection for women.

Listen to the recording of the press call.


The National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare will be joined by Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC), Dr. Heidi Hartmann, Institute for Women's Policy Research and Dr. Judy Feder, Georgetown Professor and Urban Institute Fellow, to brief Congressional staff and interested media on the need for income equality, financial security and health protection for women of all ages.  

The National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare was joined by Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Congresswoman Gwen Moore (D-WI), NOW President Terry O’Neill and Tufts Health Plan President/CEO, James Roosevelt, Jr. on a press call today to announce the launch of a new national initiative called Eleanor’s Hope, to help bring an end to the disparity between men’s and women’s income, health and retirement security.

On behalf of the millions of members and supporters of the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare, I urge you to oppose H.R. 3522, introduced by Representative Bill Cassidy. This legislation would allow health insurers to continue offering coverage outside of the insurance marketplaces established by the health law even if those plans do not comply with its coverage requirements. In addition, the inferior plans that would be allowed to continue under Representative Cassidy’s bill discriminate against people with pre-existing conditions, force women to pay more than men for the same coverage and impose annual caps on the amount of care received by enrollees.

As we celebrate Social Security's 79th anniversary today, it's important to acknowledge the program's vital role in protecting both current and future generations of Americans. Social Security has made a profound improvement in the economic security of millions of families, especially during these tough economic times.

I commend Chairman Bill Nelson, Ranking Member Susan Collins, Senator John Walsh and other members of the Aging Committee for holding this field hearing on Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias.  The Senate Aging Committee has a long history of highlighting the need to combat Alzheimer’s disease and to provide assistance to family members and friends who are caring for someone with this devastating illness.  

Since its inception, Social Security has been the foundation on which America’s retirement security rests.  It has demonstrated its strength by paying benefits without interruption in good times and bad, during periods of recession and disaster and during recovery and healing.  The program’s strength is demonstrated yet again in this year’s Trustees Report, which reflects the resilience of the Trust Funds. The report is good news for working Americans and for seniors.
