“By unveiling his revised Social Security 2100 Act, Congressman John Larson once again defies the media narrative that ‘no one in Washington has the courage’ to address the program’s future. Rep. Larson’s bill extends the solvency of the Social Security trust fund for decades while also providing American seniors with a much-needed expansion of benefits. He achieves this by asking high earners to begin paying their fair share into the program. At a time when the House Majority has taken the country to the brink of default — which could have catastrophic consequences for seniors on fixed incomes — Congressman Larson offers a commonsense, fair, and forward-looking plan to ensure that the 88 year-strong promise of Social Security remains fulfilled.” – Max Richtman, President and CEO, National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare
