Social Security

It is time for a generation of politicians that are ready to address tough issues head on, and that starts with Social Security. 82 years in, Social Security remains one of the most important public programs ever in the United States, yet recent studies estimate that it has only has about 12-15 years of solvency. To preserve this program for future generations, we must pro-actively address the issue. Ryan believes in working in a bipartisan way to make Social Security solvent in the long run, without privatizing the program. That starts by raising the cap on FICA contributions so that people making more than $118,000 pay their fair share. As JFK once said, “from those to whom much is given, much is required.”
