AMAC Requests President Trump Nominate a Social Security Commissioner

Dan Weber republicans recess tax death taxDan Weber, president and founder of AMAC, the Association of Mature American Citizens, recently wrote a letter to President Trump on behalf of AMAC’s 1.3 million members, asking the president to nominate a candidate for Commissioner of Social Security.

The Social Security Commissioner’s office has been vacant since 2013, and AMAC firmly believes the SSA needs the leadership of a Senate-confirmed Commissioner. As the fastest-growing senior organization in the United States, AMAC is aware of the vital role the SSA plays in the lives of many American seniors, and is confident President Trump will make a strong nomination.

The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500

Dear Mr. President:

On behalf of the 1.3 million members of AMAC, the Association of Mature American Citizens, I write today to request that you quickly nominate a candidate to fill the vacant position of Commissioner of Social Security.

Since 2013, the Social Security Commissioner’s office has been vacant. As you know, the Social Security Administration (SSA) plays a vital role in millions of seniors’ lives. In fact, in 2016, nearly 50 million retired workers, their dependents, and widows/widowers received a Social Security Benefit from SSA. With total expenditures exceeding $1 trillion in Fiscal Year (FY) 2017, and with more expenditures forecasted for FY 2018, SSA needs the leadership of a Senate-confirmed Commissioner more than ever.

As the largest, fastest-growing seniors’ association in the country, AMAC has admired your decisive leadership and keen business savvy in the White House. We are confident you will make a strong nomination to fill this crucial position at SSA.

Thank you for your consideration of our request.

 

Sincerely,

Dan Weber
President and Founder of AMAC

Here’s something you can advocate for. — Get our government to STOP Forcing Medicare on those that don’t want it and don’t need it…

And pass a law allowing us to buy free market health insurance of any type at any age that insurers are willing to sell us, including across state lines. I want catastrophic, dirt cheap, insurance to cover major medical emergencies and nothing else – and I’m 60 years old.

And pass a law requiring posting on the internet of fees for all procedures “with insurance”, “paid by cash”, etc so we can shop for cheapest price.

On SS, increase the payroll tax enough to make it solvent, and stop giving it away to people who “game” the system.
