Magaziner Receives a Perfect Score on Alliance for Retired Americans’ Congressional Voting Scorecard

Seth’s record on seniors’ issues is perfect

During Older Americans Month, Representative Seth Magaziner (RI-02) received a perfect score on the Alliance for Retired Americans’ Congressional Voting Record, which includes key votes on legislation to avoid government default, provide additional funding for the Social Security Administration and protect voting rights. 

“Older Americans have worked hard their entire lives, and they deserve to retire and age with dignity,” said Rep. Seth Magaziner. “I am proud to receive a perfect score from the Alliance for Retired Americans, and will continue to stand up for seniors and fight to protect the Social Security and Medicare benefits they have earned. Our country must ensure that those who have worked hard and contributed to our society are supported in their golden years.”

Rep. Magaziner has been working to ensure that seniors in Rhode Island and across the country have their voices heard, needs met and can enjoy their golden years with peace of mind.

He introduced legislation to reestablish a House Permanent Select Committee on Aging and works closely with the RI-02 Seniors Advisory Committee to advocate for the needs of his constituents. 

Rep. Magaziner also introduced H.R. 5924 - the Lower Drug Costs Today Act, which would speed up the implementation of the Inflation Reduction Act’s drug pricing provisions in order to ensure that seniors are able to reduce their out-of-pocket spending and secure lower drug prices quickly.  

Additionally, Rep. Magaziner is a cosponsor of H.R. 4583 - Social Security 2100 Act, which will ensure Social Security benefits keep up with the cost of living and extends the solvency of the Social Security Trust Funds. He is also a member of the Expand Social Security Caucus.
