Open Letter to President Obama on passing H.R. 5670 – “The Social Security Guarantee Act of 2016” Please see Open Letter below:
Dear Mr. President:
“The Social Security Guarantee Act of 2016″ protects benefits for all eligible recipients, now and in the future. This Bill, when passed, guarantees the right of individuals to receive Social Security benefits in full and with an accurate, Senior American based, annual cost-of-living adjustments (COLAs).
Today, there is NO LEGAL GUARANTEE for Social Security benefits, which means Congress can make BENEFIT CUTS or the Social Security Administration may pay PARTIAL BENEFITS if the necessary funds are unavailable from the Trust Fund.
The Social Security Guarantee Act of 2016 would give all eligible recipients a benefit guarantee certificate from the Secretary of the Treasury that would require benefits to be paid to Seniors IN FULL.
I support the Social Security Guarantee Act of 2016 and strongly disagree with many in Congress who are considering proposals that would cut, reduce, delay or eliminate my Social Security benefits.
I urge YOU to take action right now to protect Social Security for me and future generations.
