The Social Security Dialogue, Part I

Economists feel that we may be able to save Social Security, although probably not Medicare and Medicaid. I am hoping that we can save all three with modifications if we can ever work together and come up with modifications that are acceptable to all Americans and not just those on the Right. This chart from Mark Thoma at the Economist’s View Social Security web site is of course controversial, but it does point out that Social Security could be saved without bankrupting America.
