Obama Re-Election Signals Limited Choices, Higher Taxes, Continued Instability for Medicare and Social Security

"Medicare and Social Security are actuarially unsustainable without reform”

Atlanta, GA – American Seniors Association, the nation’s fastest growing senior’s advocacy organization, today called the President’s reelection an unfortunate four-year extension of policies that will limit seniors’ choices in Medicare and extend concerns about the financial stability of Medicare and Social Security.

"This is of special importance to American Seniors, who must consider not only their own welfare, but that of their children and grandchildren. We are especially concerned about the future of healthcare and the survivability of Medicare and Social Security, which are actuarially unsustainable without reform,” said Phil Kent, CEO of American Seniors. "The nation’s finances and the economic security of the nation’s seniors must be protected and assured – quickly and with certainty.”

Over the last four years, the President’s actions have inspired little confidence from seniors as he cut $716 billion from Medicare, reducing payments to doctors and hospitals, and secretly eliminated federal support for the very popular Medicare Advantage programs, which gives seniors health care choices and flexibility.

"The President’s affection for job-killing tax increases, Medicare cuts and unchecked spending adds up to nothing but instability and concern for the nation’s seniors,” said Kent.
