How to fix Social Security
Last week’s report by Social Security’s Trustees that the system’s trust funds could be exhausted by 2033 — three year’s earlier than the prior year’s estimate — ought to be a wake-up call for Democrats and Republicans to put country above party. It’s time to stop kicking the can down the road and work together toward a goal we all share: retirement security. As Americans live longer and our population ages, we need a reliable retirement system with strong public and private elements.
