In signing a personal social security protection pledge on Wednesday, Democratic Senate Candidate Scott McAdams said it’s important that seniors know they have a safety net when they retire.
McAdams acknowledged that there have been funding problems with the Social Security System. However, he suggests that enough money would be available if the cap on the system’s payroll tax were lifted. He says a CEO of a major company, making a salary in the millions of dollars pays no more than someone making $150,000.
In the pledge he has made McAdams promises to fight cuts to Social security benefits and to stand against any attempts to weaken or put the system at risk.
