Rodney Glassman on Social Security
John McCain supported privatizing Social Security at a time when Wall Street and the American financial institutions were crumbling. Rodney is committed to protecting the investment that families have made in the Social Security Trust Fund and will never submit to risky schemes to benefit Wall Street while risking taxpayers' retirement funds. He will protect that fund from being used to pay for other government programs. Rodney opposes any tax increase on Social Security benefits.
Some 200 Democratic House and Senate candidates have signed on to a pledge rejecting any effort to privatize or scale back Social Security benefits or raise the retirement age. The Progressive Change Campaign Committee sponsored this pledge among Congressional candidates.
