“Raphael Warnock’s election victory is not only good news for Democrats — who will expand their Senate majority to 51-49 — but for seniors across the country. Senator Warnock will continue to fight for Social Security, Medicare, and lower prescription drug prices, as he has done during his two years in office. His championing of the Inflation Reduction Act and cosponsoring the Social Security Expansion Act helped win him the endorsement of the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare this election cycle. Senator Warnock will be one more vote against Republican schemes to “reform” seniors’ earned benefits, which really means benefit cuts and privatization. The next few years will continue to be challenging for older Americans impacted by COVID and the post-pandemic economy. Thanks to the voters of Georgia, seniors will continue to have another staunch defender of their vital earned benefits in the U.S. Senate.” – Max Richtman, President and CEO, National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare
