"I have been a leader in Congress to protect Social Security from fraud and abuse totaling $8 billion and to get back nearly $15 billion in overpayments. I also led the fight to protect Medicare from $60 billion in annual fraud and abuse."
- As the Baby Boomers continue to retire at a record pace, we must find solutions to strengthen Social Security and Medicare. As a heart surgeon, husband, and father I know we can and must do better for the American people. Congress needs a fact-based approach to solving the crisis we face in both of these programs. I am committed to protecting and preserving these programs for our seniors and future generations.
These are vital programs for our seniors and Congress must act to address the financial strain these programs are under. I will continue to work on these issues so every senior can enjoy their retirement without the threat of losing their retirement or healthcare.
