Happy Birthday Social Security, Now Let's Finally Give You a Raise
This Wednesday, August 14th, Social Security will celebrate 78 years of never missing a single payment and helping millions of Americans live with dignity and honor. This year, let’s work together to give Social Security a real raise for it’s birthday, by expanding benefits and paying for it by asking billionaires to pay the same rate as the rest of us.
The American people know that our Social Security system works, and during the economic collapse of 2008 they saw that while their home equity, 401k’s and savings were devastated, Social Security was the one source of retirement security that people could rely on.
With so much uncertainty about the future, Seniors are relying more than ever on our earned Social Security benefits. That’s why now is the time to build upon the one retirement security system that we know we can count on.
