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 Older Americans. In Congress I serve as the Co-Chair of the House Democratic Caucus Task Force on Aging and Families , 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, and championed efforts to support family caregivers.  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.
