The Candidates and Social Security Solvency: No Long-Term Solutions in Sight?

With the latest round of Democratic candidate debates now in the books, anyone hoping to hear a solid proposal to resolve the Social Security solvency dilemma was disappointed. In fact, as reported in a post on Yahoo Finance, the candidate positions outlined so far “fall short of the elusive goal of complete solvency.” This absence of specific thoughts on Social Security’s long-term future gave rise to a plug for HR 860 (The Social Security 2100 Act) now under consideration in Congress.  HR 860, introduced by Rep.
