President Obama’s Weekly Address 8/25/2012 We Need To Strengthen And Preserve Medicare

President Obama speaks to the American people about the critical need to strengthen and preserve Medicare for our seniors and future generations. “I think our seniors deserve better. I’m willing to work with anyone to keep improving the current system, but I refuse to do anything that undermines the basic idea of Medicare as a guarantee for seniors who get sick,” Obama said. “Here in America, we believe in keeping our promises – especially to our seniors who have put in a lifetime of hard work and deserve to enjoy their golden years. That’s what Medicare is all about. That’s why we need to strengthen and preserve it for future generations. And as long as I have the honor of serving as your President, that’s exactly what I’ll do.”
