The National Committee has delivered millions of petitions to Members of Congress demonstrating the nation’s broad support – across all ages and parties – for Social Security and Medicare. Our members and supporters have voiced opposition to benefit cuts that would come from raising the retirement age, means testing and the Chained CPI and support for Boosting Social Security benefits and legislation which would improve coverage. Sign a National Committee petition and tell Congress how you feel about proposals impacting seniors.
Large majorities of Americans, both Republicans and Democrats, agree on ways to strengthen Social Security — without cutting benefits. Fully 74% of Republicans and 88% of Democrats agree that “it is critical to preserve Social Security even if it means increasing Social Security taxes paid by working Americans. The National Committee’s Boost Social Security Now campaign informs and mobilizes our membership, grassroots networks and on-line communities to convince Congress that now is the time to boost benefits, not cut them.
