For decades, the National Committee has tirelessly battled attacks on our social insurance system, which always come from fiscal hawks claiming big changes must be made to reduce deficits. This is currently occurring at a time when millions of Social Security beneficiaries are struggling to afford soaring prescription drug prices and higher out-of-pocket health care costs, and growing numbers of senior Americans are counting on their earned benefits just to stay out of poverty.
That is why we cannot leave anything to chance in the 116th Congress (2019-2020). We must continue to remind our elected officials that retirees and working Americans oppose cuts to Social Security in order to reduce soaring deficits or pay for costly tax policies that mostly benefit the wealthy and multinational corporations. So please sign our Petition today!
