Seniors Issues

Our seniors built our nation. After years of their dedication and sacrifice, I believe that it’s just wrong that some in Congress want to balance our budget on their backs.   I know that cutting Medicare benefits, or privatizing social security, will hurt our senior citizens.  Instead we should make our current programs more sustainable for future generations.  Social Security and Medicare are the foundation of our retirement security, and it should be a guarantee – not a gamble. Together, we can work to improve the programs while saving billions by combating abuse and fraud. I will stand up for Hudson Valley seniors and fight to protect their Social Security and Medicare benefits.

Additionally,  my office can help seniors and their families directly, if they have problems with Social Security, Medicare or other federal agencies.  Please call 845-561-1259 or fill out this form

For more information concerning my work and views on Seniors' issues, please contact me.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you.
