Kelly Loeffler in 2020 AARP Senate/House Voter Guide


On Budget & Economy: Cut regulations; encourage investment; lower taxes

We've got to fully open our economy, get employees back to work. We've got to make strong commitments to bringing manufacturing back to America. I introduced my Beat China Act to reduce costs and reduce our dependency on foreign countries for health care and related products. We need to keep cutting regulation, encouraging American investment, lowering taxes and allowing free markets to restore prosperity and opportunity for all.

On Health Care: Against Medicare for All, use free market solutions

My goal is to make sure that seniors have better access to quality, affordable health care. I will never cut funding for seniors. Democrats are pushing a dangerous "Medicare for All" system that would bankrupt our country, increase health care costs, reduce coverage and decrease the quality of care. We need to look at ways to increase the efficiency in the current system, cut waste, use free market solutions to drive down the cost of healthcare while increasing affordability and quality.

On Health Care: Reduce regulation, increase competition, cut waste

Every Georgian should have access to high-quality, affordable care. The path to that future will require that we reduce regulation, increase competition and cut waste. Trump has taken action to lower drug prices using exactly these principles, bringing more competition to the market, cutting out the middleman insurers. The socialist Democrats want "Medicare for All," which would mean less choice in the insurance market, worse care and more expensive doctor visits.

On Health Care: For nursing homes, we need tort reform & to cut regulations

I've worked hard throughout COVID-19 to ensure that our nursing homes and long-term care facilities have access to the funding and the support that they need to keep serving our seniors, especially those in rural Georgia. For our nursing homes, for our long-term care facilities, we've got to look at tort reform and other ways to eliminate burdensome regulations that slow down access and reduce quality.

On Social Security: Don't privatize, but address long-term solvency

No matter how we move forward with this program, we will never cut funding for seniors who depend on it. The fact is, our system is in trouble. Career politicians failed us. They treat Social Security like a slush fund, and they spend the money, instead of saving it for seniors. We should not privatize Social Security, but we do need to address the long-term solvency of Social Security in a way that cuts waste, that maximizes efficiencies and guarantees earned benefits for our great seniors.
