Senator Boxer Seeks Views on Social Security
Tuesday, February 15, 2005
This year, Congress will take up a debate that will determine the future of Social Security. In its 70th year, Social Security is one of the most successful federal programs, providing a secure retirement for countless seniors and other benefits to widows, children, and disabled people.
I recently delivered a major speech on Social Security and the current attempts to “reform” it. I am inviting you to read my speech, which outlines my position, and join me in the fight to keep Social Security an insurance program that provides real security for Americans.
You will find my speech and an accompanying petition that you my sign at http://boxer.senate.gov
This is one of the most important matters facing our nation, and powerful interests will join the battle. I hope I can depend on your support as I work to protect Social Security and the millions who count on it for their financial security now and in the future.
U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer
