Seniors
We have plenty of highly qualified seniors who have retired. We can create a program that can offer jobs for them training the younger generation and college students who may take an interest in getting a head-start in their occupation.
 
Not only that, I will introduce a bill to offer more affordable housing plans for seniors who intend to stay in the area after retiring. I will be working with local landlords, hospitals, and senior care centers to devise specifics plans benefitting senior citizens within the district and make sure both parties benefit from such.
 
We have plenty of highly qualified seniors who are “not ready to fully retire because of financial constraints or because you enjoy your work, but you don't want to stick with the 9-to-5 grind”(AARP).

A lot of retired seniors in District 33 are well-educated professionals with a whole lot of time on their hands. We can use their help in many ways. They can be instructors at local after school programs to introduce their former jobs and answer questions for kids. CPA can teach math courses for kids, painters to teach art classes, etc.
 
Seniors that need our help should also be provided adequate residence at reasonable cost. We can work with local hospitals, senior care centers, elderly care centers, and apartment owners to offer some affordable units with tax deduction as an incentive. Our focus is to keep these people in the area they already love.
 
“If there are multiple properties in one area or a cluster of housing properties, operators could consider how they can aggregate in order to create volume for a potential health partner”(SenHouseNews).
 
Housing in District 33 is not very affordable and it is going to be a problem for those who have retired. With an incentive such as tax credit, I am certain many developers and landlords will take interest in this idea.
 
Much of my experience has been in the medical field and I understand the health problems of America. “The states can choose (within broad federal requirements) how to oversee, finance, and deliver care through their Medicaid programs—which has resulted in 56 different Medicaid programs across the states and territories.
 
Medicaid’s ongoing transformation—due to the aging population, increased spending per enrollee, and expansion of state programs—emphasizes the need for improved program oversight”(GAO). Medicaid needs to be streamlined so that it is more efficient.
 
The U.S. healthcare system has limited medical benefits, and I will fight for improved medical plans that will be beneficial for all Americans to make Americans more stable and strong.
