Congresswoman Joyce Beatty

Representing the 3rd District of Ohio

Seniors Issues

 

Beatty's Pledge to Seniors

I am fighting to protect the benefits that seniors worked hard to earn. That is why I support strengthening and expanding Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid, as well as upholding the promises made to America’s seniors by improving these programs and by ensuring their long-term solvency. Our seniors worked a lifetime to live their golden years with dignity, and I will make sure that promise is kept.

Highlights of Beatty Work for Seniors

  • Sponsor of the Social Security 2100 Act to expand Social Security benefits and ensure the solvency of the program for the long-term.
  • Sponsor of the Social Security Fairness Act to end the Government Pension Offset and Windfall Elimination Provision in Social Security.
  • Supports the Rehabilitation for Multiemployer Pensions Act to shore up the multi-employer pension system.
