Trump attacks Medicare!

PSARA is a member of the Social Security works Washington Coalition. In response to Trump’s attack, the Coalition just sent the following letter to all Washington congressional representatives and senators.

Dear Representatives and Senators:
On October 3rd , 2019, President Trump issued an Executive Order(EO) entitled “Protecting and Improving Medicare for Our Nation’s Seniors.” Rather than “Protecting and Improving Medicare…” the EO threatens to do incalculable harm to present and future Medicare beneficiaries. Congress should take steps to equalize the two Medicare programs to assure that there is an end to discrimination against the Medicare recipients who choose the traditional Medicare program.

View the entire letter HERE.


For millions of us us in Washington State, Social Security ensures security and dignity. Here is what lawmakers need to do to keep it that way: Read the Statement by Social Security Works, Washington here.
