Roxanne Conlin on Social Security

 


Defend Social Security instead of privatizing it

Seniors need and deserve a senator who will protect and defend Social Security, not try to privatize it. Senator Grassley has long supported privatizing Social Security. He wants to make seniors dependent on the private financial sector for those benefits. If he had been successful in pushing through his radical plans to risk Social Security on the stock market, imagine the devastating impact on millions of seniors when the economy came crashing down.

Reject privatization; don't raise the retirement age.

Conlin signed the Social Security Protectors Pledge

Some 200 Democratic House and Senate candidates have signed on to a pledge rejecting any effort to privatize or scale back Social Security benefits or raise the retirement age. The Progressive Change Campaign Committee sponsored this pledge among Congressional candidates.
