Reform Party of Florida Statement on Social Security and Medicare

Florida has a large number of elder voters. One of the founding principles of the Reform Party is to keep Social Security solvent. Instead of keeping the Social Security solvent, the Republicans and Democrats have been raiding the trust, and taking people’s hard earned wages. The Democrats offer no solution, and the Republicans want to privatize Social Security and hand it over to bankers. The Reform Party wants to repay the Social Security trust fund, and make sure that everyone has an account with their name on it. If the government borrows from the trust, then that money will be paid back with interest like a treasury bond.

The Democrats and Republicans have mismanaged Medicare. As health costs rise, many elderly Floridians worry that their Medicare will be taken away, and have been ignored by Clinton and Trump. The Reform Party wants to keep Medicare viable by rooting out fraud and waste, and simplifying administration to cut costs without raising taxes. We also want to work with drug companies to reduce the price of medication, and lower patient costs.
