Senator urged progressives to improve Social Security

A senator recently gave a speech to a nonprofit group in Washington urging progressives to improve Social Security to help Americans who are in need–not reduce it for budget reasons, an article by the Columbus Dispatch stated on July 9.

Senator Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) in a speech told the Center for American Progress that politicians should be discussing Social Security as a means to promote retirement security instead of debating to offset government funds by reducing the agency’s budget. Brown last year proposed to increase Social Security benefits and to increase the Social Security taxes of upper-class citizens. Nearly 58 million citizens depend on the retirement benefits and 9 million on the disability benefits managed by the agency.
