There is work still being done getting new legislation in the works to protect the Social Security program for Americans.
“Mitch Daniels, the former Republican governor of Indiana, and former Sen. Kent Conrad, D-North Dakota, are among the former elected officials from both parties that sit on the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget’s board of directors. Officials from each administration dating back to the Nixon presidency, including Paul Volker, Erskine Bowles, Paul O’Neil and Peter Peterson are also among the directors.”
Something has to be done to maintain the program. Many many Americans have to rely on their Social Security income only. Americans are living longer and working longer- generally 20 years or so after 65 and that was not the case when Social Security was originally set up. Times have changed. It is disheartening that there has to be some tough decisions made, but we feel strongly that if Indiana’s own Mitch Daniels is involved in the decision process- there is hope for the best possible solution.
