David Jolly on Social Security
Which option Jolly favored wasn't so clear, beyond setting some kind of benefit guarantee for people who have already qualified for Social Security or are currently receiving payments. He hasn't said whether private accounts were at the top of his list of potential fixes, only that they should be considered. Democrats were attempting to make it sound like he is 100% behind the idea; we rate that statement `Mostly False.`
Jolly said several times on the campaign trail that the Supreme Court found that `Social Security is not guaranteed.` A 1960 case did indeed say that; Congress can change the rules. We rate his statement `True.`
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.
