Nonprofit spotlight: Social Security Works
Social Security is under attack. Corporations and their puppets in Congress are stepping up their campaign to undermine Social Security so they can declare it broken and privatize the entire program. This would be bad for most of us—but great for the fat cats who bankroll the GOP.
With no Social Security to fund, there would be less pressure to raise taxes on the wealthy. And Wall Street would have more money to gamble with. Here’s the truth about Social Security. It’s not in trouble. It will pay full guaranteed benefits until at least 2033. And it’s vital. Almost two out of three seniors depend on it for most of their income.
Social Security Works is fighting to protect your Social Security from right-wing raids. And it depends on CREDO members like you. In March we donated $84,292 to the group to help them carry out their important work.
