Expanding Social Security is essential to keeping millions of Americans out of poverty—including hundreds of thousands of Californians.
SITUATION: U.S. Representative John Larson, (D-CT), has introduced the Social Security 2100 Act: A Sacred Trust, which will increase benefits and lower taxes of SS recipients, while ensuring that Social Security remains solvent for the rest of this century.
SITUATION: California State Senator Nancy Skinner has introduced State Joint Resolution 11, which requests California Representatives in Congress to call for a vote supporting the Social Security 2100 Act, which is crucial because:
- A message from California—the most populous state in the nation—will be heard loud and clear, and other states will follow
- California is home to a major percentage of U.S. citizens age 65 years and over
