Bruce Braley on Social Security


Protect Social Security from risky privatization

Republicans have a plan to privatize Social Security if they get the chance--and Bruce’s opponent has been a huge supporter of privatization. Bruce Braley will protect Social Security and people’s retirement. Bruce will stand against risky Social Security privatization schemes that put guaranteed benefits in jeopardy. Privatization is incredibly costly--transition costs would add $4.9 trillion to the federal debt over the first 20 years such a plan would be in effect.
