Let’s protect and expand the most successful social insurance program in our country’s history!
For 80 years, through good times and bad, Social Security has been there for America’s seniors, people with disabilities, children and veterans. Before Social Security, about half of America’s seniors lived in poverty. Today that number has been reduced to just 8%.
In addition to lifting millions of seniors out of poverty, Social Security also acts as the single most successful social insurance program protecting disabled workers, children and veterans.
Join us in celebrating Social Security’s 80th birthday by telling all presidential candidates and members of Congress it is time to move beyond Wall Street’s calls for cuts and privatization and toward a conversation that protects and expands Social Security for current and future generations.
