Vote to save Social Security warns President Obama

“Republicans want to gut Social Security and Medicare to give more tax breaks to the wealthy.” - President Obama

“Some of your parents are on Social Security. Some of your grandparents are on Social Security. You know why they have Social Security? Because they worked for it,” said Obama. “They worked hard jobs for it. They have chapped hands for it. They had long hours and sore backs and bad knees to get that Social Security.” 

Where are the people who depend on Social Security? How many of them are retired? Disabled? Widows? How much do they get in benefits? Check this map.

People worked hard for their Social Security

“Some of your parents are on Social Security. Some of your grandparents are on Social Security. You know why they have Social Security? Because they worked for it,” Obama said, drawing cries of “yes” and loud applause. “They worked hard jobs for it. They have chapped hands for it. They had long hours and sore backs and bad knees to get that Social Security.” 

Republicans hope to take advantage of inflation and other economic problems without offering real proposals for addressing them. “When gas prices go up, when grocery prices go up, that takes a bite out of people’s paycheck. That hurts,” Obama said. “But the question you should be asking is: Who’s going to do something about it? Republicans are having a field day running ads talking about it, but what is their actual solution to it?”

“I’ll tell you,” he continued. “They want to gut Social Security, then Medicare, and then give some more tax breaks to the wealthy.”- Mother Jones

Freedom is on the ballot

  • Freedom to retire in dignity with programs we worked for like Social Security and Medicare
  • Freedom to care for our loved ones with Paid Family and Medical Leave
  • Freedom to decide if and when we grow our families
  • Freedom to get the healthcare we need without fearing we’ll go bankrupt to get it
  • Freedom to make a good living and organize to demand safe working conditions
  • Freedom to have an equal say in the decisions that impact our lives
