The Honorable Nancy Pelosi
The Speaker of the House of Representatives
United States Capitol
Washington, DC 20515
Dear Madam Speaker:
Social Security is a safety net for me and my family—we rely on this monthly paycheck to keep us above the poverty line and allow us to retire with dignity.
62 million Americans, or about 1 in every 6 residents collect Social Security, funding over 9 million jobs and $1.4 trillion in economic activity every year. For two-thirds of retirees in our country, Social Security represents over half of their overall income—in fact; half of Americans not yet retired have yet to put away more than $10,000 towards their future retirement.
If nothing is done now to fix Social Security, millions will be impacted—including me and my family. This is not just important for my survival now, but I want to make sure that my children and grandchildren will have this when they need it, and this proposal makes sure it will be available for them as well.
We urge you to please bring Congressman Larson’s Social Security 2100 Proposal, H.R.860 to a vote in the House.
