Social Security

More Issues

Basic Position: Make it secure. Stop raiding the Social Security trust fund.

Overview: The enormous Thompson-Bush deficits, triggered by freeing the wealthiest Americans from federal taxation, have endangered our ability to pay Social Security benefits in the future.

We should never borrow against funds in the Social Security account. We should extend the Social Security tax to insure that our elderly are cared for. This should be combined with Universal Health Care so that every elderly person can get the drugs and care, including nursing home and rest home care, that they need.
