The National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare PAC enthusiastically endorses Rep. Elissa Slotkin for U.S. Senate. Rep. Slotkin has been a steadfast ally of Michigan seniors in the House, earning her a 100% rating on our NCPSSM legislative scorecard.  She casts every vote affecting seniors with their interests in mind.

Rep. Slotkin is a cosponsor of the Social Security 2100 Act which would strengthen and expand the program — and the Social Security Fairness Act to repeal the WEP/GPO provisions that penalize some civil sector workers.  She voted for the Inflation Reduction Act, which empowers Medicare to negotiate drug prices with Big Pharma and is already lowering seniors’ costs.

Where Rep. Slotkin is a staunch defender of Social Security and Medicare, the same cannot necessarily be said of the GOP primary candidates for Senate in Michigan. Some have supported proposals that would jeopardize seniors’ earned benefits (which they call “entitlements”) and raise the retirement age. Some have also incorrectly blamed Social Security for swelling the national debt.

We need Elissa Slotkin in the U.S. Senate as part of the firewall against proposals that would be harmful to seniors — and as a champion of the programs that millions of Michiganders rely on for financial and health security.  For her fierce advocacy for seniors, exceptional skill on policy affecting older Americans, and compassion for our most vulnerable citizens, we are very proud to support her bid to represent Michigan in the U.S. Senate. – Max Richtman, President & CEO, National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare
