State of Colorado secondary Archives: on Social Security


Ed Perlmutter: Opposes private accounts for Social Security

Colorado has one of the fastest growing senior populations in the country. In Jefferson County alone, the older population is expected to grow 56% by the year 2020. Ed strongly believes we need to keep our promise to senior citizens and tomorrow's retirees to maintain Social Security. He opposes "privatization" or private accounts for Social Security payroll contributions and supports removing the cap on payroll taxes ensuring the wealthiest people pay their fair share. He supports further Congressional oversight and investigation to identify ways to keep Social Security solvent. In order to serve the changing demographic in our district, Ed hosts Senior Resource Fairs to connect seniors, family members, and caretakers with non-profit organizations, government programs, and resources in the community
