A growing chorus of prominent voices in Congress and elsewhere are calling for the expansion of our Social Security system--people who know that Social Security will not "go broke" and does not add a penny to the national debt. "Social Security Works " will amplify these voices and offer a powerful antidote to the three-decade long, billionaire-funded campaign to make us believe that this vital institution is destined to collapse. It isn't.
From the Silent Generation to Baby Boomers, from Generation X to Millennials and Generation Z, we all have a stake in understanding the real story about Social Security. Critical to addressing the looming retirement crisis that will affect two- thirds of today's workers, Social Security is a powerful program that can help stop the collapse of the middle class, lessen the pressure squeezing families from all directions, and help end the upward redistribution of wealth that has resulted in perilous levels of inequality.
All Americans deserve to have dignified retirement years as well as an umbrella to protect them and their families in the event of disability or premature death. Sure to be a game-changer, "Social Security Works " cogently presents the issues and sets forth both an agenda and a political strategy that will benefit us all. At stake are our values and the kind of country we want for ourselves and for those that follow.
