WHEREAS, since its inception, Social Security has been a compact between our nation, older retired and disabled Americans and their dependents; and
WHEREAS, there are ongoing efforts to privatize Social Security; and
WHEREAS, privatization would surely result in reduced revenue to the OASI System and, therefore, reduced or eliminated benefits; and
WHEREAS, such a system would create vast inequities among workers; and
WHEREAS, Social Security is healthy and will remain so well into this century:
RESOLVED, that the AFT continue its efforts to oppose the privatization of Social Security; and
RESOLVED, that the AFT oppose any diversion of money from the Social Security Trust Fund and continue to support legislation to have money used for budget deficit programs returned to the Social Security Trust Fund.
