Dear Friends,

On Monday, May 6th, I will be hosting a discussion on the future of Social Security. Social Security isn’t an entitlement, it’s the insurance you’ve paid for. It is the working American’s retirement guarantee, providing economic security for millions of Americans including seniors, people with disabilities, and children and spouses who have lost a provider.  We need to enhance the program’s benefits so that no one who has worked their whole life retires into poverty.
