We must ask ourselves, what does it mean to age with dignity? If you’re unable to hear your partner’s voice, or unable to see the world around you, or made to live with severe dental pain — is that dignity? Let’s expand Medicare to cover hearing aids, dental care, and eyeglasses.

It’s helpful to read anti-UBI opinions like this to understand why the new monthly child benefit is such a big deal and should be made permanent. The checks are visible. Parents will know they’re getting them unlike an invisible tax subsidy. That’s a great thing and builds trust. https://t.co/9t8ulzyvW3
