Those who work hard and play by the rules deserve a dignified and secure retirement.  I am committed to improving the health and well-being of our aging population.  In Congress I serve as the co-chair of the Congressional Task Force on Seniors, where I lead efforts to protect and strengthen Medicare and Social Security for seniors in Sacramento and the rest of the nation.  I have also advocated for reforming our systems so that all Americans can achieve retirement security.  I will continue working to make sure that our aging population can gain the fiscal and social stability they deserve and have worked so hard to acquire.
