Raleigh – North Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Wayne Goodwin released the following statement on the 83rd Anniversary of Social Security:
“Social Security has long protected American workers and their families by providing a sense of safety in times of financial uncertainty. Countless North Carolinians depend on Social Security to stabilize their paths to success and to smooth their transitions into retirement, and it is crucial that we continue to build upon and strengthen this vital program.
“Republican lawmakers, however, have undermined people’s retirement stability with massive tax breaks for the wealthiest few and threatened cuts to Social Security benefits. Democrats stand resolute in our defense of this important program and, today, reaffirm our commitment to its continued success.”
