The Hamblen County Social Security Anniversary Event
- This event has passed.
1.5 million Tennesseans rely on Social Security and Medicare. Before Social Security and Medicare, many seniors fell into poverty. These programs have allowed generations of Americans to retire with dignity. Paul Ryan, Diane Black and the Republicans in DC are trying to privatize Medicare and turn it into a voucher system, forcing seniors back into the private insurance market. Senator Corker and Alexander want to raise the retirement age before asking the wealthy to pay their fair share, forcing Americans to work longer. We must fight to protect Social Security and Medicare from Republicans so the next generation of Tennesseans can rely on them as their parents and grandparents did.
