Betty Castor on Social Security


Oppose investing Social Security in the stock market

There is no imminent danger. There is no immediate problem to Social Security. We have time to address it. The thing we cannot afford to do is create any risk at this time.

Privatizing Social Security will reduce benefits

If we privatize, the only thing that will happen is that the benefits for those already on the system will have to be reduced.

Protect Social Security from risky investments

Betty knows how important Social Security is for our nation's seniors. Unfortunately, there are some in this country who want to jeopardize Social Security by investing in risky private accounts. One out of every five Floridians receive Social Security. Betty knows we must keep our promise to senior citizens and protect the Social Security Trust Fund. In addition, Betty will always oppose raising the retirement age or reducing Social Security benefits.
