Social Security Virtually Ignored at GOP Convention

"Amid all the promises and platitudes about improving our economy and addressing the fiscal challenges facing American families offered at the Republican Party’s national convention, it’s very telling that the critical role Social Security plays in average Americans’ lives was virtually ignored.  In fact, whenever the GOP referenced Social Security at all, the focus was on cutting benefits and, as suggested in the party platform, privatizing the program.  You can’t talk seriously about a strong economy without acknowledging the role our nation’s most effective anti-poverty program plays in communities from coast to coast.  That’s why release of a new online tool, Social Security Spotlight, is so important in providing vital information about Social Security’s economic impact nationwide."...Max Richtman, NCPSSM President/CEO. 

National Senior’s Advocate Warns: A Trump-Pence Ticket Should Worry America’s Seniors

Two Party Platforms –Two Starkly Different Views on Social Security

The Democratic Platform released today clearly shows that the differences between how the Democratic and Republican parties will approach the future of Social Security couldn’t be starker. The GOP platform promises to consider all benefit cut options, refuses to lift the payroll tax cap and suggests sending Americans’ earned benefits to Wall Street through privatization. The Democratic Party platform, on the other hand, offers the strongest statement on strengthening Social Security seen in decades.
