Kamala Harris on Social Security

Democratic candidate for President; California Senator

 


Trump deficits will endanger Social Security

Harris said that a second term for Trump would endanger Social Security due to rising deficits. "To have four more years of this administration means to really put Social Security in jeopardy," she said. Harris said the widening deficit, which the White House projected this week will reach $1 trillion this year, was the result of Trump's tax bill, which "benefits the top 1% and the biggest corporations." Funds to make up the shortfall are "going to have to come from somewhere," she added.

Oppose entitlement cuts; strengthen these safety nets

Strengthening Social Security & Medicare: Social Security and Medicare are the bedrock of our social contract. Together, these safety net programs keep millions of seniors and people living with disabilities out of poverty. While some in Washington have voted to balance the budget on the backs of seniors, Kamala would oppose cuts to Social Security and Medicare, and believes we need to strengthen these safety nets.
