Martha McSally on Social Security
Decades of politicians kicking the can down the road has left us with a situation in which if we do nothing, we will not have enough resources to protect Social Security and Medicare for my generation and those who follow, and that is unacceptable. This is simply a math issue, so we must sit down and identify bipartisan solutions to strengthen these programs for the long haul.
We also must protect Social Security for current seniors and preserve it for future generations who are working now and paying into it. However, I am against any effort to privatize Social Security because seniors have paid into this program their entire lives and are relying on it for retirement security. We cannot violate our promise to them.
