Thunderclap will never see your password or private information. When you log into Thunderclap using your Twitter or Facebook account, you’re allowing Thunderclap to share a single message on your behalf. Thunderclap will only be allowed to post this one-time message from your social media account, and will not post anything else. 

It’s a promise that’s been kept for generations: you pay into Social Security, you get the benefits you earned.

But if our leaders don’t take action, that promise could be broken for the next generation. Future retirees could lose up $10,000 a year.

Our next president must address this looming crisis. AARP’s Take A Stand campaign is putting pressure on Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump to make Social Security a priority and put serious proposals on the table -- but it’s voters like you who can really make them pay attention.

The townhall debate on October 9 is our chance to get some real answers. Let’s make sure the moderators, ABC’s Martha Raddatz and CNN’s Anderson Cooper, see that Americans are counting on them to ask both candidates the tough questions on Social Security.

Join AARP’s Take A Stand Thunderclap now, and call on Anderson Cooper and Martha Raddatz to hold Secretary Clinton and Mr. Trump accountable on their plans for Social Security during this critical debate!

  • The election is over. Now, will you stand for seniors?

    November 18, 2016
    You and thousands of others took a stand on Social Security during this election, and your action helped show our power.
     
    Now that the election is over, we are focusing on our work ahead - and we need your support again on another urgent issue. 

    Throughout the 2016 Presidential campaign, President-Elect Trump made it clear that he believes that Medicare is a program that works, and a deal with the American people that must be honored. 

    But now, some in Congress are talking about dramatic changes to the program - and harmful benefit cuts are a real possibility.
     
    Can we count on you to take action again, and help hold Donald Trump to his word? Tell President-Elect Trump that you’re counting on him to keep his promise, and stop Congress from cutting Medicare!

    All I can say is wow. 
     
    Thanks to more than 9,000 supporters like you, the Take A Stand Thunderclap just launched - reaching more than 2.8 million people across social media.
     
    Debate moderators Martha Raddatz and Anderson Cooper won't be able to ignore our call to hold both candidates accountable on Social Security. Thanks for adding your voice, and making it clear that Americans want real answers from the candidates on this critical issue. 
     
    I'll be watching on Sunday, and I hope you will be too. 
     
    Your action today will make a difference -- but there's more to be done to keep Social Security strong for generations to come. If you’re ready to take the next step, sign our pledge and join the campaign today:
     
     
    Thanks for standing with us,
