2018 Social Security COLA Won't Meet Seniors' Needs

The just-announced 2.0% cost-of-living increase (COLA) for Social Security beneficiaries is woefully inadequate. The 2018 COLA translates into a paltry $27 a month for the average recipient, barely enough for a prescription co-pay, a tank of gas, or a bag of groceries. 

Letter Supporting Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP)

On behalf of the millions of members and supporters of the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare, I am writing to express our support for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), which is providing health coverage for millions of children in working families.  Since the 1997 passage of CHIP, which has always received bipartisan support, the number of uninsured children has been reduced by 50 percent.

Letter Opposing House Fiscal Year 2018 Budget Resolution

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. Con. Res. 71, the House Fiscal Year 2018 Budget Resolution and the Republican Study Committee budget.  Instead, I ask you to support the Democratic Caucus, Congressional Progressive Caucus and Congressional Black Caucus budgets. 
Seniors on Graham-Cassidy: "Is It Dead Yet?"

Seniors and their advocates are cautiously breathing a sigh of relief over the failed GOP effort to bring the Graham-Cassidy bill up for a vote.  The window to pass Obamacare repeal with a simple majority as part of the 2017 budget process officially closes at midnight Sunday.  Grass roots activism by National Committee members and supporters and hundreds of like-minded groups – including courageous protesters who came to Capitol Hill in braces, crutches, and wheelchairs – helped beat back this latest attempt to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.  We are grateful to Senators John McCain and Susan Collins for putting principle over party and opposing the bill.

Letter Endorsing Medicare Dental, Vision, and Hearing Benefit Act of 2017

On behalf of the millions of members and supporters of the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare, I am writing to endorse H.R. 3111, the “Medicare Dental, Vision, and Hearing Benefit Act of 2017.”  It is our hope that action will be taken on your legislation during the current 115th Congress.

House GOP Recklessly Pursues Privatization of Medicare in Budget Process

Congress is targeting the health and financial well-being of America’s seniors by making yet another attempt to privatize Medicare. Yesterday the House Budget Committee passed the GOP’s FY 2018 budget resolution, which includes Speaker Paul Ryan’s “Medicare premium support” scheme – an innocuous name for turning time-tested senior health care coverage into “Coupon-Care.”
