Congressman John Barrow’s Reply – Preserving Medicare, Social Security and Veteran benefits

Dear Ms. Clark,

Thank you for contacting me in support of preserving Medicare, Social Security and Veteran benefits.  You have my steadfast support.


Today, millions of Americans benefit from the insurance Medicare provides, and thousands right here in Georgia’s 12thDistrict count on Medicare as their only source of medical care.  Like Medicare, Social Security is a critical program that our seniors have paid into for decades, and I’m opposed to cutting benefits or privatizing the program.


Our Veterans have earned their benefits through years of service and sacrifice to our nation.  Cutting these benefits would only hurt those who have devoted their lives to protecting and serving our county.  The United States made a promise to take care of those who serve our country, and I intend to keep that promise.


We must restore discipline to the nation’s finances, but I refuse to place the burden of fiscal reform on our seniors, veterans, and vulnerable populations.  I believe we can reach agreement on a budget, and I’m committed to doing so while preserving Medicare, Social Security, and Veterans benefits.


Thanks again for caring enough to get involved, and please don’t hesitate to contact me again in the future.
