U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton speaks at the Iowa Democratic Wing Ding dinner in Clear LakeBy Luciana Lopez NEW YORK (Reuters) – Hillary Clinton has told the AFL-CIO she wants to improve Social Security benefits for women and lower-income seniors, offering a glimpse of the Democratic presidential front-runner’s thinking on a topic she has rarely addressed on the campaign trail. In a questionnaire on labor issues from April that has not been made public, Clinton said she would defend Social Security from Republican attacks and “enhance it to meet new realities.” Leaders with the AFL-CIO, an umbrella group for 56 member unions representing more than 12.5 million workers, pressed Clinton and other candidates at a meeting last month on issues such as trade and wages. The AFL-CIO did not endorse a candidate for the November 2016 election.
