Media Advisory

U.S. Representative John Larson (D-CT) and U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal will be joined by Max Richtman, President and CEO of the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare to discuss the Social Security 2100 Act on Monday March 30, 2015 in West Hartford. 

The Social Security 2100 Act seeks to strengthen retirement security for seniors while providing a more robust revenue source to ensure Social Security’s solvency beyond the next 75 years. The legislation seeks to have millionaires and billionaires pay the same payroll tax rate as everyone else and provides for a very modest payroll tax increase for most wage earners. The legislation also includes a reallocation of the payroll tax to ensure the solvency of the Social Security Disability Insurance Trust Fund.
