Back in 1983 Social Security was in crisis. A commission couldn’t come to any agreement to fix it. Ronald Reagan and Tip O’Neill, the Democratic Speaker of the House, sat down and worked out a plan to fix the system (temporarily as it turns out).
Today not only can’t our leaders come to any agreement on fixing Social Security, they can’t even admit there is a serious problem. Instead they still talk about the Trust generating a surplus, claim raising the taxable wage limit will fix the problem and even leave funds for expanding the program and my favorite; Social Security has no impact on he deficit or debt.
Who are the biggest fools, our politicians or the American people?
