I didn't want the 73rd anniversary of Social Security to pass without sharing this new DNC video. It features the grandson of Franklin Delano Roosevelt talking about his grandfather's belief that "lifting our seniors out of poverty is a reflection of our nation's core values."
We owe his grandfather our deep gratitude. Today, Social Security lifts nearly 13 million and 1.3 million children out of poverty.
John McCain? He called Social Security an "absolute disgrace" and he embraces the Bush privatization plan that would risk sending millions of people back into poverty. Obama proposes protecting Social Security by opposing privatization and a higher retirement age.
Watch the video. It's very good.
