Liberal Advocacy Group Urges Biden to ‘Clean House’ at Social Security - AMAC & GovExam.com
Erich Wagner, writing on GovExec.com summarizes a number of proposals coming out of the liberal advocacy group, Social Security Works. The group has long advocated expansion of Social Security and Medicare despite the fact that both programs need reform, as they steamroll toward insolvency. Wagner elaborates on the group’s blueprint that calls on the incoming Biden Administration to force Commissioner Andrew Saul to resign or be fired and replace all political appointees at the Social Security Administration. The group also wants a number of Trump executive orders rescinded, chief among them the Social Security payroll tax deferral. Read the full article here.
The Association of Mature American Citizens (AMAC) believes Social Security must be preserved and modernized. This can be achieved by making modest changes in cost of living adjustments and the retirement age, with no additional taxes on workers. AMAC advocates for a bipartisan compromise, “The Social Security Guarantee Act,” taking selected portions of bills introduced by former Rep. Johnson (R-TX) and current Rep. Larson (D-CT) and merging them with the Association’s own well researched ideas. One component is Social Security PLUS, a new, voluntary plan that would allow all earners to have more income available at retirement. This component is intended to appeal especially to younger workers. AMAC is resolute in its mission that Social Security be preserved and modernized and has gotten the attention of lawmakers in DC, meeting with a great many congressional offices and their staffs over the past several years.
