What Does Project 2025 Bode for Older Americans? Hint: Nothing Good

The right-wing Heritage Foundation produced Project 2025, a blueprint for a second Trump term.  Though Project 2025 doesn’t specifically advocate for cuts to Social Security, the right-wing think tank has taken positions that would seriously undermine the nation’s most popular social insurance program.  On the issue of Medicare and prescription drug prices, however, Project 2025 explicitly calls for changes that could be devastating for seniors.  We chatted with our senior legislative representative, Maria Freese, about the implications of Project 2025 for older Americans.

Even so, Social Security still could pay 83% of scheduled benefits at that time.
