West Virginia’s seniors helped build this nation and Senator Manchin is committed to ensuring we keep the promises made to them. To West Virginia’s seniors, Social Security and Medicare are not just government programs, they are promises made by a thankful nation to ensure a quality of life well-earned from years of hard work and sacrifice.

Senator Manchin believes that keeping our promises to our seniors by protecting Medicare and Social Security must be our priority as we discuss responsible ways to start living within our means again. Our nation faces a serious debt crisis, and Senator Manchin will support budget fixes that are defined by our priorities based on our values as West Virginians and Americans.
