I am a strong supporter of Social Security and I oppose dismantling the system that hardworking Americans have paid into their entire lives. The Social Security trust funds--which have been plundered to pay for endless wars, uneven tax cuts, and other expenses--are your money. Don’t let anyone tell you, you aren’t entitled to it.
If we don’t resist this extremist agenda of dismantling beloved and effective social programs, Social Security will become insolvent by 2034. Without it, more than 40% of seniors would have incomes below the poverty line.
Adjustments need to be made to discretionary spending to make sure retired Georgians are paid what they’re owed.
I will never support raising the retirement age or slashing benefits paid to our elders.
