Tell your Senators Hands off Social Security

    1. Petition by

      National Gay and Lesbian Task Force


It’s a new year and a new Congress. But sadly, the same politicians who spent 2010 attacking Social Security are at it again. They’re demanding deep cuts to Social Security to reduce the deficit — despite the fact that Social Security hasn’t contributed one penny to the deficit. Social Security has a $2.6 TRILLION surplus!

Nearly all Americans will depend on Social Security at some point. And LGBT people have less income in retirement and have to rely on Social Security more than straight people.

Social Security is based on ONE simple promise: If you pay into the system, you’re guaranteed benefits when you need them. Period! This is one promise to the American people that politicians in Washington have no business breaking.
