Will You Take a Stand?

It’s a promise that’s been kept for generations. You pay into Social Security, you get tdem1he benefits you earned. But to keep that promise for future generations, Social Security needs to be updated for the 21st century. If our leaders don’t act, future retirees could lose up $10,000 a year. You work hard and pay into Social Security and you deserve to know how the candidates will lead so you can have a say.

Anyone who thinks they’re ready to be President
of the United States should be able to tell voters how they’ll keep Social Security strong.
