To Ensure Dignity for 'Most Vulnerable Among Us,' Bernie Sanders Introduces Bill to Expand Social Security
In an effort to strengthen one of the nation's most popular programs as the GOP pushes for cuts, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and several Senate Democrats on Wednesday introduced the Social Security Expansion Act to ensure that seniors can retire in dignity and "everyone with a disability can live with the security they need."
"A great nation is not judged, historically, by the number of billionaires it has or by the number of nuclear weapons it has. It is judged by how it treats the most vulnerable people among us."
—Sen. Bernie Sanders
