Issue Position: Social Security
As you are aware, Social Security is being pushed as the next major program in need of reform.
Mississippi's Second Congressional District currently has a total of 122,168 beneficiaries that receive Social Security. Also, our district has the second highest number of children receiving social security benefits. Privatization is a proposal that takes the hard earned money of hard-working people and puts that money into risky private stock accounts. Such uncertainty takes the security out of this social program.
The Social Security we know today is and has always been an on-time, guaranteed benefit for retirees and should stay this way. I will continue to monitor this issue, keeping a close watch to ensure Social Security remains intact as Congress works toward reform.
