Diana is committed to protecting Social Security and Medicare for future generations. She will fight against any effort to end Medicare’s guaranteed benefits, privatize Social Security, or raise the retirement age. Diana knows that Social Security has not contributed to this nation’s deficit and we can’t look to the program to solve our budget crisis. In fact, Diana wants to ensure the future of Social Security, and give seniors a boost in benefits, by closing tax loopholes that allow the wealthiest earners to avoid paying their fair share of payroll taxes. Diana supports COLA increases by using the CPI-E, which better represents how seniors spend their money.
