Received this e-mail from Social Security Works PAC in support of Theresa Greenfield’s (D. IA) U.S. Senate campaign:
Republican Senator Joni Ernst told a town hall audience that Congress needed to make plans for our Social Security system “behind closed doors so we’re not being scrutinized.” Why hide from the public unless you’re planning to cut it?
Since then, Sen. Ernst’s popularity has fallen off a cliff―and we have a real chance to elect a Social Security champion to the Senate to replace her.
Please meet Social Security Works PAC’s first endorsement of 2020: Theresa Greenfield!
Theresa understands the critical need of a strong Social Security system. As a young mother at 24 years old, Theresa lost her husband in a workplace accident. Her family relied on their Social Security survivor benefits and her late husband’s hard-earned union benefits to put food on the table and keep a roof over their heads.
As a single mom, Theresa provided for her two boys, and eventually rose through the ranks to become president of a family-owned, small business in Iowa. Theresa has promised to fight for health care as a human right, expanding Social Security, and lowering prescription drug prices in the Senate! She will be better than Joni Ernst in every way.
Social Security Works has already run mobile billboards throughout Iowa to remind voters that Ernst wants to cut Social Security without shouldering the blame and that she’s “talked about privatizing Social Security” since at least 2014 (her own words!).
Together, we’re fighting to expand Social Security for current and future generations.
