After 87 Years of Social Security, Jen Kiggans Wants to Rip Earned Benefits Away

Yesterday marked 87 years of Social Security. As we approach the November elections, here is a reminder that while Democrats fight to protect people’s earned benefits, Jen Kiggans wants to rip them away.

Here are at least two on-paper plans set forward by Republicans that seek to sunset Social Security or raise eligibility age:

  • Sen. Rick Scott has pitched and garnered support for his plan that would raise taxes on millions of Americans and sunset away essential programs like Social Security and Medicare within 5 years.
  • The Republican Study Committee – which represents nearly 75% of the House Republican Conference – has a plan that would raise the Social Security eligibility age, delaying when seniors can access their hard-earned benefits.

A vote for Kiggans and her party is a vote against protecting Social Security.

DCCC spokesperson Monica Robinson:
“Virginians work long and hard to access their earned benefits, but that doesn’t seem to mean anything to Republicans like Jen Kiggans who are planning to rip Social Security away. Kiggans and her Republican Party cannot be trusted with people’s hard earned benefits.”
