To Strengthen Medicare, Pass Common Sense Immigration Reform

To Strengthen Medicare, Pass Common Sense Immigration Reform

Would you support legislation that would add $202 billion to the Medicare trust fund in the next 20 years, without raising taxes or decreasing benefits by one penny? Eight months ago, the Senate passed a bipartisan, comprehensive immigration reform bill (S. 744) that would do just that. If this legislation becomes law, it will strengthen Medicare by providing millions of undocumented workers with legal status and a pathway to citizenship.

The High Cost to Latinos of Raising the Medicare Age

The High Cost to Latinos of Raising the Medicare Age

Raising the Medicare eligibility age to 67 could cost Latinos in the United States more than $2.4 billion in the first full year of implementation. Such a change would increase premiums in the healthcare exchanges for those under 64, increase the average out-of-pocket costs for those 66-67 and increase Medicare premiums for those 67 and above. Overall, it could cost the average Latino nearly $6,000 over their lifetime.
