Mark Takano on Social Security



Fight to protect Social Security from privatizations plans

Mark is the only candidate in this race endorsed by the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare. Mark Takano will fight to protect Medicare and Social Security from Republican privatizations plans. These programs are sacred promises our nation has made to its senior citizens, and Mark will work to ensure that they remain strong, fully-funded and ready to serve current and future retirees. Mark will never support any effort to balance the budget on the backs of senior citizens.
