Our country must honor it's promises to our senior citizens. When Washingtonians retire, they should be able to do so with peace of mind. Dan Newhouse believes it is our duty to preserve Medicare and Social Security for current and future generations. These are systems that hardworking Washingtonians have paid into their entire working lives, and they should know that they will be there when they need them most.
Dan also prioritizes making these systems financially soluble. He opposes wasteful government spending that, in effect, adds to the deficits that both Social Security and Medicare are running.
In 2016, Dan was awarded the coveted Guardian of Seniors' Rights Award from the 60 Plus Association for his dedication to helping seniors.
