John is the Chairman of the Social Security Subcommittee in the House and is leading the charge to ensure Social Security is strong for generations to come. He has a plan that not only strengthens Social Security so it is around for future generations, it also expands the program to ensure no one who works their whole life and pays into the system retires into poverty.
