Rep. Sam Johnson—Chairman of the House Social Security Subcommittee—has introduced a bill that would cut most Social Security recipients’ benefits by an average of 27 percent. Some long-lived recipients would lose up to three-quarters of their benefits.

Johnson’s bill includes an assortment of benefit cuts including raising the retirement age to 69 (equivalent to a 13.5 percent across-the-board cut), changing the benefit formula (9 percent average cut), and slashing the cost-of-living adjustment (13 percent average cut).

Sign the petition today opposing Chairman Sam Johnson’s “Social Security Reform Act,” which cuts benefits for 70 percent of Social Security recipients.

To: Congress

The American people are facing an unprecedented retirement crisis. Instead of cutting Social Security benefits for millions of recipients, we should be expanding them. Please oppose Rep. Sam Johnson’s “Social Security Reform Act,” which cuts benefits for 70 percent of recipients, eroding Social Security’s promise to current and future generations.
