AFT members are invited to sign an online petition opposing any efforts to privatize Social Security. The petition, sponsored by the AFL-CIO, will be submitted to your representative and senators in Congress, with a copy to President Bush. The AFT believes that the president’s Social Security privatization plan would devastate working families—while handing billions of dollars to rich Wall Street investment companies. Privatization plans to replace guaranteed benefits with risky private accounts would fatally undermine Social Security, cut benefits drastically, most likely raise workers’ retirement age—and saddle our children with $2 trillion in debt.
