Don’t listen to Republicans when they say Social Security is an “entitlement” and that we need “entitlement” reform, it’s NOT.
Social Security is the insurance that YOU pay for through the Federal Insurance Contribution Act. Whose contribution? YOURS.
I am leading the charge to ensure Social Security is strong for generations to come. I have a plan that not only strengthens Social Security so it is around for future generations, it also expands the program to ensure no one retires into poverty. Current recipients will also receive an increase in benefits and more than 10 million seniors will get a tax cut.
A woman in Wethersfield once told me, “I don’t want to be a burden.” Our seniors aren’t burdens, they’re a part of our greatest generation. We need to be doing all that we can to make sure they are taken care in their golden years and to ensure that their grandchildren have Social Security to help them when the time comes.
