I decided that since there has been so much hooplah, and do I dare suggest, misinformation about social security, that I would focus on the history of social security and move forward to the present as I had done with the healthcare question last month. As it turned out, the author of one of my favorite blogs, “Time Goes By” found a great little video on YouTube explaining Social Security. Since I certainly cannot do it any better, I thought I would pass it along. However, I am still interested in writing about the history of Social Security (in particular when it was started in the ’40′s and when it was first reviewed in the ’80′sand why it keeps being put on the table as an area that needs to be adjusted. In the meanwhile, please enjoy this video explanation.
I am placing this in the boomer blog because clearly, Social Security is the next big thing facing boomers.
