A survey conducted by the National Academy of Social Insurance asked 2,000 Americans age 21 and over how they felt about Social Security’s effectiveness as a social insurance program and about their perspectives regarding the future of the of the Trust Fund.
Simply put: a group of Americans were asked what they wanted from Social Security.
When all was said and done, results showed that despite differences in age, ethnicity, income, and political affiliation, most Americans agree Social Security benefits must be strengthened, not reduced. In fact, the results of this survey show most Americans are willing to give more if it means no American is forced to go without.
As our elected officials continue to examine cuts and reductions to beneficiaries as an answer to Social Security’s solvency crisis, we ask Congress: please listen to the voices of everyday Americans. More cuts are NOT what we want.
