President Trump has already signaled the intention to “leave Social Security alone” while at the same time easing taxation on Social Security benefits with his proposed tax-code.
“I think with the way seniors have been treated over the last 8 years by the former administration, not getting a raise in their benefits for three of the last 8 years, this is a great first step,” states President and CEO Dr. “A large portion of seniors rely solely on Social Security for their survival.
“The fact that he would actually go on national television and state, “I can't guarantee that those checks go out on August 3rd if we haven't resolved this issue” is not only a blatant scare tactic, but unbelievably counterproductive,” continued Bridges.
“What we need in this country is leadership, not fear mongering to achieve your selfish spending binges at the expense of senior citizens.” The Seniors Coalition wants to thank all that participated in this year’s Senior Citizens Census.
Thank you to all Seniors Coalition members that have called your Congressman in support of H. If you haven't already, call your Congressman and urge him/her to cosponsor HR 991.
