Democratic Congressional Nominee Tracy Mitrano said Tuesday the next Congress will have to take strong and immediate action to strengthen and expand Social Security and Medicare-and to ensure that for decades to come, Americans receive the benefits for which they have paid and which they deserve. She says Social Security alone impacts many within the district.
Mitrano supports raising the earnings cap on the Social Security tax. In 2018, the cap was $128,400, which meant that an individual who received a higher income did not pay any Social Security tax on those additional earnings. She also supports an expansion of Medicare through the lowering of the age of eligibility, so that more Americans who are in need of health care are able to receive coverage.
