There are problems that require urgent attention, but Social Security is not one of them.

The financing of Social Security needs only minor adjustments in the coming years. Nonetheless, the same forces that opposed the creation of Social Security are now trying to use our country's economic woes as an excuse to dismantle one of America's most popular and successful programs.

Social Security is a central part of what makes ours a humane and caring nation, one providing a degree of dignity and security to many millions of Americans in their older years. One of my priorities as a member of Congress will be to defend Social Security from those who cannot be trusted to deal with it honestly.
