Upon Release of Major Report on Social Security and Veterans, Social Security Must Not Be Cut

Washington, DC - A coalition of veterans organizations, including VoteVets.org, and Social Security groups today released a major new report on Social Security and veterans.  The report showed that veterans and their families depend on Social Security not just for retirement, but also for disability benefits and death benefits.  These findings show that any cutbacks to Social Security will severely impact veterans and their families in need.

Interim Chairman of VoteVets.org, and Iraq War Veteran Ashwin Madia said, "What is abundantly clear is that veterans and their families depend on Social Security more than maybe anyone else.  There's no doubt that we as a nation need to ensure that Social Security is viable for the long-term, but the way to do it is not to cut the system back to bare bones."

Founded in 2006,  and backed by over 100,000 members, the mission of VoteVets.org is to use public issue campaigns and direct outreach to lawmakers to ensure that troops abroad have what they need to complete their missions, and receive the care they deserve when they get home.  VoteVets.org also recognizes veterans as a vital part of the fabric of our country and will work to protect veterans' interests in their day-to-day lives.   VoteVets.org is committed to the destruction of terror networks around the world - with force when necessary - to protect America.  While non-partisan, the group is the largest progressive organization of veterans in America.
