Rob Bonta - AD 18
AJR 7 – Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid


“Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid represent three critical pillars of our social service safety net. After 76 years, Social Security remains actuarially sound, with a trust fund that is expected to peak at roughly $3.1 trillion in 2020…The other legs of the safety net—Medicare and Medicaid—provide critical healthcare services for millions of Californians. Medicare covers 5 million elderly or disabled Californians while roughly 14 million Californians are Medi-Cal beneficiaries, including the elderly, disabled, indigent, and many children.
