SEC. 505. SENSE OF THE SENATE REGARDING SOCIAL SECURITY RESTRUCTURING.

It is the sense of the Senate that— (1) the President, the Congress, and the American people including seniors, workers, women, minorities, and disabled persons should work together at the earliest opportunity to enact legislation to achieve a solvent and permanently sustainable Social Security system; (2) Social Security reform must— (A) protect current and near retirees from any changes to Social Security benefits; (B) reduce the pressure on future taxpayers and on other budgetary priorities; (C) provide benefit levels that adequately reflect individual contributions to the Social Security system; and (D) preserve and strengthen the safety net for vulnerable populations including the disabled and survivors.
