WINNING TOGETHER We are millions of people taking action for progressive change

CREDO released the statement below in response to President Obama’s remarks today in support of expanding Social Security benefits:

“We’re thrilled that President Obama has joined the millions of progressive activists who support expanding Social Security,” said CREDO Political Director Murshed Zaheed. “This is a huge reversal from the days when President Obama sought a so-called ‘grand bargain’ with Republicans that included cuts to Social Security benefits,” Zaheed continued, adding, “thanks to relentless grassroots activism, the national conversation has shifted from cutting Social Security to expanding it.”

CREDO has played a leading role in the fight to stop any cuts to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, and to expand the programs. Last year more than 240,000 activists signed a CREDO petition urging Congress to expand Social Security.
