Commitments to Seniors in the 2013 Budget

President’s 2013 budget lays out a blueprint economy that’s built to last and is committed to our nation’s seniors.

President Obama laid out a blueprint in his State of the Union address for an economy that’s built to last – an economy built on American manufacturing, American energy, skills for American workers, and a renewal of American values.  The President released a budget that illustrates how we put that blueprint to work.  

Yesterday in his message to Congress, the President explained that we are in a make-or-break moment for the middle class, and for all those who are fighting to get there. The Budget targets scarce federal resources to the areas critical to growing the economy and restoring middle-class security: education and skills for American workers, innovation and manufacturing, clean energy, and infrastructure. It is built around the idea that our country does best when everyone gets a fair shot, everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same rules.

To honor our commitments to our nation’s seniors, the 2013 Budget will:

  • Strengthen Social Security.
  • Provide a Cost-of-Living-Adjustment.
  • Improve Medicare.
  • Protect Seniors from Abusive Financial Products.
