Protecting Social Security
Fred Keller will protect Social Security.
Fred was raised by his grandmother, who depended on Social Security. He understands that people earned their Social Security and its importance to their lives.
Fred Keller is committed to enacting real solutions to protect Social Security, just like he worked in a bipartisan way to protect public sector pensions as a member of the Pennsylvania General Assembly.
Fred has a proven track record of working in a bipartisan way with all interested parties to find workable solutions to complex challenges. That’s why Fred was a leader in crafting historic pension reform legislation that put Pennsylvania on a level-playing field with what is offered in the private sector while ensuring current state employees and retirees have their benefits protected.
The best way to protect Social Security is to grow the economy and create jobs so that more people work and pay into Social Security.
The reason Social Security is in its current situation is because of irresponsible policies that drained funding from the Social Security Trust Fund. Liberal policies like the $93 trillion Green New Deal and the $32 trillion government takeover of healthcare would further bankrupt the government and jeopardize social security. Fred is committed to preventing this from happening.
Aucker: “Fred has never said he would cut Social Security.”
May 9, 2019, Daily Item Letter to the Editor by Harold Aucker of Selinsgrove, Pa.
As a veteran, voter, and current Social Security beneficiary, I am appalled by the campaign rhetoric coming from one of the candidates running for Congress in Pennsylvania’s 12th District. Marc Friedenberg has been outright lying about opponent Fred Keller’s position on Social Security. Mr. Friedenberg is resorting to the same old scare tactics we hear during nearly every election, falsely saying that Fred wants to cut Social Security.
I know Fred personally, as most of us in the Susquehanna Valley. I have talked to Fred about his position on this and many other issues. Fred has never said he would cut Social Security. Fred understands that the people who paid into Social Security earned those benefits. He gave me his word that he would work to protect those benefits if elected to Congress.
I’m a registered Democrat and a veteran, and I value the person over party. I never heard Mr. Friedenberg mention the word veteran or Veterans Affairs. Integrity and character matter. On May 21, I will be voting for Fred Keller.
