Rep. Knight has made it no secret that he believes Social Security “was a bad idea.” However, Knight’s anti-senior record isn’t just limited to his negative views on Social Security. In addition to voting to jeopardize Social Security disability benefits, Knight has also voted against protections in elder care facilities, voted against regulating the life insurance industry, and voted to turn Medicare into a voucher program.
