Seniors have paid into Social Security and Medicare throughout their lives, and they should be able to count on these programs for health care and income security in retirement. Medicaid provides vital health care benefits for low-income families and persons with disabilities. In Massachusetts alone, there are 1.1 million Social Security beneficiaries, 1.1 million seniors who receive Medicare benefits, and 1.6 million recipients of MassHealth, the Medicaid program in the Commonwealth.
Senator Markey has fought to protect Social Security and has consistently advocated for necessary cost-of-living adjustments (COLA) and the repeal of both the Windfall Elimination Provision and the Government Pension Offset, which currently limit the benefits for surviving spouses of military or civilian government employees. Senator Markey has also vocally opposed any attempt to privatize Social Security.
