When Social Security was first enacted in 1935, our country made a promise to take care of its seniors throughout their retirement. Now, however, Republicans want to break that promise.
Plans to privatize Social Security and do away with Medicare represent the worst form of betrayal. We, as a nation, are struggling and protecting and strengthening these programs are some of the most important actions we can take to strengthen our economy and our society.
In this era, keeping the promise of Medicare and Social Security is one of the most important actions our government can take to regain all of our trust.
