According to Kreitlow, Medicare is essential for covering seniors' health care needs.

"We deserve better—the President deserves better—than a congress that wants to change Medicare as we know it, and give people a voucher that doesn't buy them nearly enough health care over time as what seniors require," said Kreitlow.

Congressman Duffy says his focus is on working hard in Washington for his constituents.
