It’s 2005 All Over Again… But Ten Times Worse

It’s 2005 All Over Again… But Ten Times Worse

*President-elect Trump, who promised not to touch Social Security and Medicare during the campaign, advocates reform on his transition website and nominated a fervent privatizer, Rep. Tom Price, as Secretary of Health and Human Services.  His second in command, Governor Mike Pence, is a well-documented privatization proponent. We can’t count on Mr. Trump to protect current and future Social Security beneficiaries.

 

There is no question the struggle will be harder than it was in 2005.  The political climate is more hostile.  The forces aiming to destroy our treasured social insurance programs are more insidious. The stakes are higher.  But we can protect Social Security and Medicare and keep them solvent for the future without cutting benefits for millions of Americans if we organize, mobilize, and make our voices heard on Capitol Hill.

Together, we can stop this war on the working class
