Now is the time to expand Social Security — not cut it. Social Security benefits simply haven't kept up with the rising costs that seniors face—for medicine, food, and housing. We're facing a retirement crisis where seniors can't rely on pensions and other parts of the social contract. We need to increase benefits to make sure they reflect the true costs seniors face. Expanding Social Security is the best way to ensure all Americans have the economic security they need to retire with dignity.
How about expanding Social Security instead of threatening to cut it & adjusting the yearly COLA increase to the ACTUAL rate of inflation? Last I checked, groceries have gotten beyond expensive for seniors/the disabled. Energy costs have risen to astronomical levels, as have rent on apartments/other housing & utilities like phone/water/sewer/trash.
