We need to know where everyone stands.
In the Senate, 43 out of the 46 Democrats have endorsed expanding Social Security.
In the House of Representatives, that number is 116 out of 188.
And now, with Sen. Bernie Sanders formally announcing his run for President we have our first declared candidate for the Democratic nomination officially in favor of expanding Social Security. That means we have the support of 1 out of 2 so far, let's change that.
We have been working together to keep the numbers in Congress going up—we need to keep the same pressure on every candidate that wants to be President. We need to make sure that expanding Social Security is a core Democratic plank—and that those who would cut benefits and services are the ones on the fringe.
