January 28, 2020

11:00 am-12:00 pm

385 Russell Senate Office Building

The Trump administration is attacking Social Security and demanding that 2.6 million people with disabilities fill out complex and unnecessary paperwork and cutting benefits. If the administration’s rule is enacted, we’re facing a $2.6 billion cut by 2029 to Social Security benefits for people with disabilities and chronic conditions, including seniors, children, and people with cancer. The administration is increasing the number of onerous continuing disability reviews and resurrecting the playbook of the 1980s when a dramatic increase in random reviews lead to tens of thousands of people losing their lives. These cuts to the Social Security program resulted in a massive outcry from the public and both chambers of Congress and were repealed. As we did back then, we will fight back. Join us to tell the Administration that we will support NO SOCIAL SECURITY CUTS!

Participants: Members of Congress, People with Disabilities, Family Members, Experts on Social Security
