It’s Time to Save Social Security
Since it was established in 1935, the Social Security program has become one of the most popular, and relied upon, government programs. A typical retired American will derive more than fifty percent of their income from Social Security. And approximately twenty five percent of American retirees rely on Social Security for nearly ninety percent of their income. Unfortunately, according to the latest Social Security Trustees’ Report, unless significant reforms are made to the system, the Social Security Trust Fund will be broke by 2033 and America’s senior citizens will face an immediate twenty three percent cut to their benefits. Unfortunately, Congress has been unable or unwilling to make the reforms that are necessary to ensure that the Social Security Trust Fund remains solvent.
