The Democratic Party Agenda on retirement security includes pledges to protect Social Security and to fight for pension reform that protects employees.
"We will ensure that a retirement with dignity is the right and expectation of every single American, starting with pension reform, expanding saving incentives and preventing the privatization of social security.
"Democrats believe that after a life of hard work, you earn a secure retirement. Our commitment to protecting the promise of Social Security is absolute.
"Democrats also recognize that Americans rely on more than just Social Security for a secure and dignified retirement.
"Democrats will continue to fight for genuine pension reform that protects employees’ financial security from future Enron-style abuse. We also want to work on new ways to help hard-working Americans create retirement savings."
