Stop Trump’s political interference in Social Security disability benefits!

The Trump administration’s latest attack on Social Security comes in the form of an executive order, which undermines the impartiality of judges who oversee Social Security disability hearings. Already, over tens of thousands of grassroots activists have called on Congress to protect Social Security from Trump’s political interference.

Members of Congress are taking action!

Representatives Bobby Scott (D-VA), Elijah Cummings (D-MD) and David Cicilline (D-RI) have introduced an amendment that would block Trump’s executive order. This amendment would ensure fair hearings in the processing of millions of Social Security disability claims, and protect the independence of Administrative Law Judges.

Click here to become a co-signer of the Scott-Cummings-Cicilline amendment. Tell Congress that a vote against this amendment is a vote against Social Security.

Trump’s executive order―which seeks to undermine experienced, qualified judges and instead appoint Trump loyalists to the bench―is part of a coordinated attack on Social Security and Americans with disabilities.

Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans are trying to divide us, pitting current and future retires against people with disabilities. The truth is, we have one Social Security system, and we need to protect it from political interference!

Become a co-signer of the Scott-Cummings-Cicilline amendment and demand Congress defend Social Security from the Trump administration’s interference.

Workers earn their Social Security protections with every paycheck, including the right to monthly benefits if they lose their income by becoming disabled. And Donald Trump’s executive order undermines the rights of all working people―threatening our livelihood. We must stand together to defend the future of Social Security.

Thank you,
