Social Security represents the best of American values – reward for hard work, honoring our parents and caring for our neighbors. Social Security belongs to the workers and their families who have worked hard, paid taxes in, and earned its benefits.
Conservatives on the right are claiming that Social Security was one of the causes of the recession and the federal deficit. Action NC believes that people’s benefits should not be cut. The federal government found the money to bail out Wall Street; it must find the money to pay what it owes to Social Security. Today’s and tomorrow’s beneficiaries – children, people with disabilities, widows, widowers, and retired workers – deserve no less.
