At the State of the Union Address next Tuesday, January 20, 2015, President Obama will be telling the country about his agenda for the year.
With just two years left in his presidency, this speech will be one of his last major opportunities to make a strong commitment to protecting and strengthening Social Security and Medicare.
You probably haven't forgotten that not too long ago, he considered making cuts to Social Security to fix the national debt – I know I haven't forgotten. Those proposals were defeated, but new threats could come in the year ahead.
This is Obama's opportunity to stand up for the benefits we've earned. I am hoping he takes that stand.
That's why I sent him a message and urged him to use the State of the Union Address to honor his prior commitment to protect and strengthen Social Security and Medicare. This isn't just for us, but also for our children and grandchildren.
