Received this e-mail today from former Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto's (D. NV) U.S. Senate campaign:
My parents and grandparents both relied on Social Security in their retirement. While my grandmother and aunt both worked in retail and made a living wage, neither was entitled to a pension. Social Security and Medicare were there when they needed them.
But Congressman Heck (my Tea Party opponent) and right-winger Sharron Angle (who’s planning another run for Senate) both want to privatize Medicare and Social Security.
Not only did Congressman Heck call Social Security a “pyramid scheme” that “isn't working,” he also VOTED for Paul Ryan's plan to turn Medicare into a voucher program.
For 80 years, Social Security has been our nation's most sacred promise to our seniors. If you work hard, play by the rules and contribute, you have earned the right to retire with grace, peace of mind and economic security.
