Saving Social Security

Recently Wausau took part in a launch of Seniors for Biden in Wisconsin. We had former Alabama Senator Doug Jones come to Wausau to do a tour on Social Security and Medicare. Throughout the week, former U.S. Senator Doug Jones launched the “Protect Our Retirement” tour to campaign for President Biden across Wisconsin, with stops in Wausau, Green Bay, and Milwaukee.

Doug Jones is a former U.S. senator and current civil rights attorney. In 2017, he won a special election to fill a U.S. Senate seat in Alabama—the first Democrat to do so in 25 years in the state. He also served as U.S. Attorney until 2001. It was while serving in that position that Sen. Jones successfully prosecuted 2 of the 4 men responsible for the 1963 bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church.

With Social Security under threat from cuts and privatization, we need to stand up and demand that Social Security be protected, modernized and expanded! Here is an example of why Social Security is important. Credits to No Dem Left Behind and our POWRS Group.
