Katana’s interview with the Author of “Expand Social Security Now: How to Ensure Americans Get the Retirement They Deserve”, Steven Hill.
Today, we will be talking about:
- Why Social Security is one of the greatest government programs ever; how most American retirees depend on Social Security to one degree or another for a decent retirement
- Why Social Security is not going broke, and how we can make sure it is funded well into the future
- Why we should expand Social Security, rather than cutting it, as many Republican leaders in the US Congress have proposed
