Nanette Barragan on Social Security

 

 


Never gamble Social Security benefits on Wall Street

Our seniors have given so much to make this country great and it's our responsibility to make sure America keeps the promise that was made to them. Whether it's through Medicare or Social Security, hardworking seniors who've paid in their entire lives deserve the security of knowing these programs will be there when they need them.

As a diabetic, Nanette's mom has had to choose between medication and groceries. No senior in America should have to make such a terrible choice. Republicans, including House Speaker Paul Ryan, have suggested we cut benefits, gamble them on Wall Street and even dismantle these programs altogether. Instead, we need to strengthen and expand them, reduce fraud and waste and ensure everyone pays their fair share so these critical programs will be in place for years to come.

Opposes diverting some FICA into personal accounts.

Barragan opposes the PVS survey question on personal retirement accounts

The Project Vote Smart Voter Guide inferred how candidates would respond to the question, 'Social Security: Do you support allowing individuals to divert a portion of their Social Security taxes into personal retirement accounts?' Project Vote Smart notes, "in response to the increasing unwillingness of candidates to answer issue questions, Project Vote Smart has researched Congressional candidates' public records to determine candidates' likely responses on certain key issues. These issue positions, from the year 2016, are provided [for candidates who] refused to provide voters with positions on key issues covered by the 2016 Political Courage Test, despite repeated requests. Historically, candidates have failed to complete our test due to the advice they receive from their parties and advisors and out of fear of negative attack ads."
