Social Security Task Force
2017 Trustees Report CCD SSTF Talking Points
The most important take-away from the 2017 Social Security Trustees Report is that our Social Security system continues to work, and work well, for the American people. No institution does more to protect the financial security and dignity of Americans in retirement, in disability, or when a worker dies and is survived by their young children and spouse.

Last night, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released a score of the Senate healthcare bill, the Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA).

Statement: CCD opposed to the Senate’s Better Care Reconciliation Act
The Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities (CCD) is strongly opposed to the Senate’s Better Care Reconciliation Act. It is simply unconscionable to restructure and decimate Medicaid, which provides healthcare services and supports that maintain the health, function, independence, and well-being of 10 million enrollees with disabilities and their families. CCD is the largest coalition of national organizations working together to advocate for federal public policy that ensures the self-determination, independence, empowerment, integration, and inclusion of children and adults with disabilities in all aspects of society.
