Congressman Trone Supports Social Security in Legislation
September 13, 2022
FREDERICK, Md. (DC News Now) — More than 300 Frederick-area seniors gathered at the YMCA at the start of the week to hear about the prospects for a stable Social Security system.
Congressman David Trone of Maryland was joined by John Larson, the US Representative from Connecticut, on legislation to keep the Social Security trust fund solvent, and then some. Both lawmakers are behind a bill to bolster the federal program, providing seniors with stable incomes during their retirement years and affordable health benefits.
“Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security – Congressman Larsen has a phenomenal bill that will govern Social Security for the next 75 years,” Trone said.
“We have a bill that extends the lifespan of Social Security, adds benefits to Social Security, takes people out of poverty,” Congresswoman Larson said.
A key feature of the Trone-Larson bill is a cap on the cost of insulin for medical care beneficiaries at $35 per month.
