State Rep. Mark Tisdel and the House Committee on Families, Children and Seniors today approved Tisdel’s resolution urging Congress to mitigate the depletion of the trust funds for Social Security and Medicare.
“Social Security and Medicare are on a trajectory to fail the people they were created to serve,” said Tisdel, of Rochester Hills. “Congress must avoid a crisis to protect benefits for people with disabilities and retirees.”
Citing federal reports, Tisdel’s House Resolution 157 states that without congressional action, the trust funds will not have the resources to pay for all of Social Security benefits and Medicare costs in less than two decades.
HR 157 advances to the entire House of Representatives for consideration.
