Social Security Benefits Are Modest by International Standards | Center on Budget and Policy Priorities |
Despite the evidence in the chart above the consensus among establishment types - meaning the governing and chattering classes in D.C. - is that "entitlement reform" must be addressed. That, of course, means cut Social Security, cut pensions, cut food stamps (by adding unachievable work requirements), cut Medicare (by privatizing, etc.). Entirely wrong in my view. Social Security is already low and any shortfall should have been made up by taxing upper incomes starting back in the Clinton era. - gwc
