The United States Democratic Party’s stance on Social Security reform includes significantly increasing benefits to senior citizens while wealthier Americans contribute more to the system.
This plan is what former Secretary of State and nominee of the Democratic Party, Hillary Clinton, is now suggesting. Her plan was crafted in close collaboration with the Bernie Sanders camp. The Vermont Senator and former presidential candidate is seeking a $65 per month average increase in Social Security benefits and higher cost of living adjustments. Trustees of the Social Security disability and retirement funds confirmed that funding for the program will run out by 2034. Some conservative officials have suggested significant cuts to benefits to keep the Social Security Administration afloat.
