I co-sponsored the Death Tax Repeal Act in the 109th, 110th, and 111th Congresses. 

I co-sponsored various pieces of legislation to preserve and protect Social Security for seniors such as the Social Security Preservation Act to ensure the program’s surplus is only used for Social Security.

I introduced The Medication Therapy Management (MTM) Benefits Act which expands the pool of Medicare Part D beneficiaries who qualify for MTM services by providing a licensed pharmacist to a patient with any chronic illness.

I have been a member of the Congressional Long Term Care Caucus. 

I co-sponsored H.R.1118, the Health Care Choices for Seniors Act. 

I co-sponsored H.R.1712, the Savings for Seniors Act of 2009 to establish a Social Security Surplus Protection Account to hold the Social Security surplus so politicians can’t spend it.
