For decades, we’ve told seniors that if you work hard, you’ll be able to retire with dignity. That’s the promise of Social Security and Medicare. And as Senate Majority Leader, Chuck delivered on that promise by passing some of the most significant measures to lower the cost of healthcare for millions of seniors.

The Inflation Reduction Act

  • Lowered the cost of prescription drugs by allowing Medicare to finally negotiate drug prices for seniors
  • Capped out-of-pocket prescription drug costs for Medicare recipients at $2,000 per year
  • Capped the price of insulin co-pays at $35 per month for Medicare recipients

For years, Republicans in Congress have tried to slash Social Security funding and privatize Medicare, and leave seniors without the benefits they’ve earned. And they’ve indicated that if they take back the majority in Congress, they’ll put Social Security and Medicare on the chopping block. Chuck Schumer stopped their attacks before, and is leading the fight to elect more Democrats who will save Social Security and Medicare.
