Tell Congress: Protect our Social Security.

Eighty-eight years ago today, Social Security was enshrined into law, becoming a guaranteed, earned benefit that has helped support millions of seniors in retirement. For decades, American workers have paid into the program with the promise that they'll be able to enter into retirement with the resources they need.

But the clock is ticking. Unless Congress acts soon, Social Security will run out by 2035.

Republicans have repeatedly made it clear that they're all in to do whatever it takes to rip away your hard-earned Social Security and Medicare benefits. Instead of working across party lines to safeguard these lifelines for seniors, Republicans are up to their same old tricks to rip away your hard-earned benefits so they can pay for their tax handouts to big corporations and the mega-wealthy.

Just a few years ago, Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell moved mountains to blow a $2 trillion hole in the deficit to give a tax handout to the wealthy and well-connected. Now, Republicans have made it clear that if they retake the Senate and White House in 2024, they're going to prioritize cutting Social Security and Medicare to pay for their handouts to the ultra-rich.

We must invest in these lifelines so that seniors can rely on them for generations to come. Sign my petition. Tell Congress: Protect my Social Security!

Instead of protecting your Social Security benefits, Republicans want to rip them away.

This is not some handout. Our nation's seniors have worked decades to ensure that they can retire with dignity, not so Republicans can create a slush fund for special interests and billionaires to plunder.

The clock is ticking on protecting Social Security and Medicare benefits before they run out. On this anniversary of Social Security, join the movement: sign my petition and tell Congress to protect my hard-earned Social Security!

Let's stand together for all Americans,
