Seniors Issues

Congresswoman Adams is honored for the opportunity to work on behalf of so many seniors in the 12th District who have worked hard all of their lives to support their families.

She supports protecting Medicare programs, as well as efforts to relieve medication costs for senior citizens and efforts to improve access to care for seniors who need it the most. 

For more information concerning my work and views on Seniors' issues, please contact our office. Thank you.

Feb 2, 2021 Press Release

Greetings!

This January in Congress has been unlike any other.

On the first Wednesday, an insurrection caused in no small part by the outgoing President breached the Capitol for the first time in over 200 years. On the second Wednesday, we voted for an impeachment necessitated by the attack the week before. 

On the third Wednesday, we celebrated the inauguration of a new President and a historic Vice President, but the day was very different due to the pandemic. The Biden-Harris Administration got to work immediately to improve our response to COVID-19.
