Sorry, we don't agree.

Savings jar

Social Security is a hard-earned benefit people pay into our whole lives. Anyone who wants to be president should protect this program that is the largest source of retirement income for most Americans, and nearly all retirement income for one in four Americans.

That’s why it’s concerning that President Trump said he’ll eliminate the Social Security payroll tax contribution if he is re-elected. This move would put the program’s funding at risk — during a pandemic, when Americans age 50+ are already on edge about their financial and retirement security.

We demand answers to understand what President Trump would do to protect Social Security. Ask him to explain his statements about eliminating Social Security’s current dedicated funding.
