Social Security is one of the most effective programs in our country's history. It serves as a foundation for retirement security that keeps our seniors from living in poverty. Millions of Americans depend on Social Security benefits and the program must be protected and strengthened to ensure its continuation for future generations. The Republican leadership is once again at work looking to break the promise we have forever made to our seniors. Democrats will never allow for Social Security to be privatized, under no circumstances.
The Republican plan to end Medicare is very real. They are fixated on cutting benefits and want to put insurance companies in control of your health. They want insurers to decide what tests and treatments seniors receive, and Democrats are united like never before in opposition to this scheme. Reforms to Medicare that break a pledge we have made to our seniors is wrong and will not stand.
