Warren's Latest Socialist Plan: Use Social Security to Redistribute Wealth: Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) unveiled another key aspect of her progressive agenda hours before the third Democrat presidential debate in Houston, Texas, proposing Thursday to raise Social Security benefits by $200 per month and pay for it by raising taxes on the “rich.”
Warren – who has largely driven her campaign on the unofficial slogan “I have a plan for that” – unveiled her plan to expand Social Security benefits.
“Typical Social Security benefits today are quite small,” Warren explained in a Medium Post. “In 2019, the average Social Security beneficiary received $1,354 a month, or $16,248 a year.”
