Dear Progressive Secretary Supporter

Here is a new Progressive Secretary letter.

This letter supports actions and policies by the AARP, the National Committee to Preserve Social Security & Medicare, Social Security Works, and others. It asks Congress to preserve Social Security.

Mr. Trump implemented a “tax holiday,” deferring FICA payments until January 1, 2021. He promised to forgive the monies that would be owed on 1/1/2021 and make the FICA abatement permanent. His plan will bankrupt the Social Security trust fund by 2023 and force the end to Disability payments in 2021.

We will send your message to your Senators and House member

Social Security is essential to our financial well-being. It reduced the US poverty rate to 16% in 2008 among the elderly alone.

These payments lift over 21 million Americans out of poverty, including over 1 million children, nearly 15 million elderly, and over 5.6 million other adults. All of these accomplishments far exceed poverty reductions resulting from the Earned Income Tax Credit, Housing Assistance, and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (food stamps).

Without Congressional intervention, Social Security will be unable to pay full benefits as early as 2034. The president’s plan to cancel FICA withholding moves that date to 2023.

Congress: You need to act now for the benefit of your constituents and all Americans. Make saving Social Security for future generations a top priority.
