Raising the Debt Ceiling

There is no doubt that America’s mounting public debt threatens our long-term strength and prosperity.  But those who recklessly argue that the solution lies in a default on our financial obligations are dead wrong.  If Congress fails to raise the debt limit, we will face another financial crisis and shake the world’s faith in the United States. 

Seniors and Social Security

SOCIAL SECURITY SOLVENCY As it stands today, Social Security will be solvent through 2037. Those who advocate making huge cuts to Social Security to balance the budget are misguided. Social Security is an essential social safety net, providing critical income to more 53 million retirees, workers with disabilities, spouses and their children. Congress must not grant huge tax cuts to the wealthy and tax subsidies to large corporations, and then try to balance the budget on the backs of our seniors.
