SITUATION: Supporting Social Security was a key issue for the founders of OWL, and it is still important today. Social Security needs to be updated to:
- increase benefits,
- clean up the many inequities in the program, and
- put the system on a firm financial footing by increasing FICA for workers with incomes exceeding $400,000.
SITUATION: HR 5723 addresses these issues and is currently in several committees, including Ways and Means and needs to be moved forward.
ACTION: Call or write speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office in California or D.C. and tell her to immediately bring HR 5723 to a vote. Let her know you are a member of OWL and think this is the best opportunity to bring this bill to a vote!
