Obama’s Commitment in Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security Encourages Senior Citizen Advocates
January 23, 2013
Washington – Senior citizen advocates find hope with President Barack Obama’s inaugural speech, Monday, expressing commitment to preserve “entitlement programs” of Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security.
The President talked about the “hard choices” his administration has to make like health care cost reduction to help control the country’s deficit.
However, Obama said that he “reject the belief that America must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and investing in the generation that will build its future.”
The American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), in its political blog, commended Obama for making a “forceful case for Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid in his inaugural address”.
During the recently concluded election period, issues about balancing Social Security and the country’s deficit have been some of the biggest issues that then presidential candidate Obama and Mitt Romney faced.
While there were doubts about Romney’s stand in the issue, Obama has reiterated that he does not believe in moves to solve the country’s deficit by sacrificing Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid.
