Standing Strong for North Carolina Seniors
- Protecting Medicare and Social Security: Medicare and Social Security are this nation’s top commitment to our seniors. Kathy is committed to ensuring Medicare and Social Security are protected for this generation and generations to come. North Carolina seniors deserve the healthcare and retirement they have earned by working hard and playing by the rules. Kathy strongly opposes any attempts to cut benefits for our seniors by privatizing Social Security. Because it’s your money, not the Washington politicians’ money, and she won’t let them take away the money you paid in with every paycheck.
- Fighting the Age Tax: Last year, Congressman Budd supported legislation that would allow insurance companies to charge older adults five times more than younger adults. The AARP called this an “Age Tax.” Kathy will fight against legislation that discriminates against older policyholders.
