Richard Tisei on Social Security

Middlesex & Essex Republican (MA Senate)

 


Protect, strengthen, & preserve Medicare and Social Security

Clearly, the federal government needs to keep the promises that it made to our current seniors. Current recipients paid into federal programs like Medicare and Social Security for many years.

I will work on a non-partisan basis with both Democrats and Republicans to help protect, strengthen, and preserve Medicare and Social Security. I will not support any change to these programs that affects current recipients or those nearing eligibility.

I will fight to keep Social Security off budget. Washington politicians will tell you that the Social Security Trust Fund contains $2.6 trillion. In reality, the trust fund is filled with IOU's from the Federal Government.

I will work to make changes to Social Security that will stabilize the program for future generations. I support means testing wealthier recipients as well as raising the minimum benefit for some of our oldest low-income beneficiaries. I will also support increased caps on IRAs in order to allow people to save more for retirement.

Lower the U.S. corporate tax rate

I will vote to lower the U.S. corporate tax rate, which is the highest in the developed world. This tax encourages companies to build facilities and move work overseas, meaning fewer jobs for Americans. I will work to reform our corporate tax code so that every business, no matter how small or large, is on an equal playing field and able to compete at home and across the world.
