As part of the third and final installment of the House Committee on the Budget’s hearing series on Restoring the Trust for All Generations, Dan Weber was invited by Chairman Price (R-GA-06) to testify for and on behalf of the Association of Mature American Citizens (AMAC). One of the most powerful committees in Congress, the House Committee on the Budget is launching a multi-year effort to restore the OASDI Trust Funds, save Social Security and Medicare, and restore the trust of the American people in their government.
As one of four witnesses invited to testify before the committee, Dan represented the concerns of millions of seniors nationwide about the state of Social Security and Medicare. With a background in pension planning, Dan explained to Representatives from all over the country that it is harder for aging Americans to retire than ever before, that health care costs are sky-rocketing out of control, and that millions of young people do not believe Social Security will survive long enough for them benefit from the program. Dan’s testimony stood as a stark, personal witness to the reality millions of seniors face nationwide.
