Fixing Social Security–CBO Looks at the Options
Moneywatch reporter Steve Vernon examines the results of the Congressional Budget Office’s analysis of potential steps under consideration to address the looming Social Security Trust Fund shortfall in an article posted today on www.cbsnews.com. As he points out, the likely path any sort of fix will take will be a combination of revenue enhancements and benefit constraints, including such measures as increasing the full retirement age and curbing future cost-of-living adjustments for beneficiaries and a host of other tweaks.
And while we’re on the subject of Social Security reform, it’s important to note that AMAC’s founder, Dan Weber, has been in the forefront of the fight to address the problems facing America’s Social Security program. As an action-oriented association, AMAC is resolved to do its part to call for action on this very serious problem. In fact, AMAC has developed a simple, actuarially sound solution that has been advanced to Capitol Hill. AMAC representatives have been resolute in their mission to get the attention of lawmakers in Washington, meeting with many, many congressional offices and their legislative staffs over the past several years. The Association is gaining ground every day, and you can help–support AMAC in this fight by joining the “AMAC Army” and contacting your congressional representative to add your voice!
