As one of your constituents, I urge you to support a permanent solution to Social Security's solvency issue. This is an issue that must be addressed for the health and well being of our society.
While a lot of people say they don't think Social Security will be around to help them when they retire, most of these people aren't following through by saving aggressively for their golden years. In 70% of the households headed by people 80 and older, Social Security currently provides 70% of the income. This shows that the average American worker needs Social Security to be there for them when they retire.
Like all problems, delay does not help things. With every year that passes, the necessary fix will have to become more dramatic and painful to get us where we need to go. For this reason, I believe the time to act is now. As a constituent of yours and as a concerned American citizen, I am asking you to take necessary action.
We need to find a long-term fix that will address Social Security solvency beyond the traditional 75-year horizon.
