Introduced into Congress by Rep. John Larson (D-CT), the Save Our Social Security Now Act would reverse President Trump’s Executive Action which deferred the payroll tax contributions of millions of American. At Regas & Haag, we support this act and we encourage everyone to contact your local Congressional districts and corresponding Representatives to let them know that you are against this Executive Action.
Introduced by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Social Security is the foundation of retirement security for our great nation. It provides nearly all workers and their families with essential insurance protections for retirement, disability, or the death of a family breadwinner. The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a global economic and healthcare crisis. Millions of Americans are relying on their savings to keep food on their table and a roof over their heads. Eliminating the safeguard of Social Security spells potential disaster for millions of working Americans.
Social Security is America’s number-one anti-poverty program, and without it, 15 million seniors (almost half of older Americans) would live in poverty. Additionally, around 4.1 million children receive Social Security benefits each month because one or both of their parents are disabled, retired or deceased. This money helps lift over 1 million American children out of poverty, and eliminating this benefit would ensure these children do not have a future.
We applaud Representative Larson and his long history of protecting and enhancing Social Security. On behalf of Regas & Haag and our clients, we thank you for introducing H.R 8171 to the House. We stand with you in defending Social Security and believe your success in protecting this trust will help ensure the financial future of our clients and Americans everywhere.
Our clients rely on Social Security payments to meet their basic needs. It’s important that the benefit they have paid into is available to them.
Contact your local Representative, and urge them to support keeping our Social Security benefits stable and properly funded.
