FEDERAL:
H.R. 1920, the Social Security 2100 Act
This bill will keep Social Security solvent for the next 75 years! Social security is in trouble, but it doesn’t have to be. This bill, sponsored by Rep. John Larson of Connecticut, makes changes in how benefits are calculated so that payouts will remain high enough for seniors to survive. To pay for it, a microscopic increase in payments--a .01% increase for each of the next 24 years will be phased in, as well as contributions from high earners. Right now, the wealthy pay no Social Security, but under this plan, people earning over $400,000 would have to pay their fair share.

SCRIPT:
Hi, I am a constituent from __________ and I am calling to urge Senator/Rep _____________ to support H.R. 1920, a bill that would increase benefits while keeping Social Security solvent for the next 75 years. Social Security is not an entitlement, it is something we pay into all of our working lives, so this is just common sense. Thank you for recording my call.
