In the deficit hysteria now sweeping Washington, Social Security has emerged in the bull's-eye as a target for cuts. And kicking the old, the disabled, the widowed is now elevated into a machismo measure of credibility on reducing the debt.
We don't need politicians demonstrating their "credibility" by kicking the elderly and the disabled. We don't need to fix a Social Security program that isn't broken. The best "fix" for Social Security is simply to tell the truth about it.
Social Security isn't broke; there is no need to "fix" it.
