Joe Biden on Social Security
Democratic Sr Senator (DE); nominee for Vice President
A: The answer is yes. The truth is, you're either going to cut benefits or you're going to go ahead and raise taxes above the first $97,000
Q: Would you also, considering now life expectancy is 78, consider gradually raising the retirement age?
A: Well, we did that once, I supported that. That's what got it solvent to 2041. By simply raising the cap, you can solve the problem.
The best way to fight senior fraud is to prevent it from happening. Seniors should be cautious when making an investment. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. They should be careful not to give their credit card or checking account number to someone they don't know. They should never give their social security number to anyone.
Let's not let heartless criminals victimize a generation of Americans who have already given so much to preserve and protect this nation. Rather, let's put our justice system to work to keep every senior safe & secure.
The mission of the Alliance for Retired Americans is to ensure social and economic justice and full civil rights for all citizens so that they may enjoy lives of dignity, personal and family fulfillment and security. The Alliance believes that all older and retired persons have a responsibility to strive to create a society that incorporates these goals and rights and that retirement provides them with opportunities to pursue new and expanded activities with their unions, civic organizations and their communities.
