White House hopeful Warren would expand Social Security retirement benefits
U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren said on Thursday that if elected to the White House, she would expand Social Security, the retirement program administered by the federal government, by increasing benefits by $200 a month for every current and future beneficiary.
The Massachusetts senator, one of 20 Democrats vying to take on Republican President Donald Trump in November 2020, said she would pay for the Social Security expansion by “asking the top 2% of families to contribute their fair share.”
“A generation of stagnant wages and rising costs for basics like housing, health care, education, and child care have squeezed family budgets,” Warren wrote in a post on the website Medium.
