Tonight is the third and final presidential debate, and we hope that the nominees will finally discuss the issues facing older Americans: expanding Social Security, strengthening Medicare, protecting earned pension benefits and reining in the skyrocketing prices of prescription drugs.

Fifteen percent of the U.S. population is older than age 65. That number is expected to grow to 20%, or 1 in 5 people by 2030. Ensuring that all Americans have a secure and healthy retirement after a lifetime of work should be at the top of the next president’s agenda.
