Social Security has been a building block of our middle class. It's created a social safety net and a basic level of financial security for seniors. It's an investment we've all made and a promise I'm committed to protecting for all of our seniors.

Those who say Social Security is in immediate danger are using scare tactics to dismantle it. The truth is, it's a good system. It's worked so well that Social Security funds have been used for other purposes, which needs to stop. But there are long-term financial concerns, which is why I support raising the income limits, or "scrapping the cap.' I also oppose raising the retirement age or privatizing Social Security.
