    In reading the book "Social Security and the Family" I learned a lot about the system that I had no idea about before. The book was fact filled and almost fun to read the need to know information. I gained much knowledge in the specifics of why the social security system is in need of reform, and why it will be inadequate in the years to come. One of the reasons our social security system isn't working is because, "Social Security was modeled on the single-earner, married-couple family" (1). Ti...

    The Graying of America Of the total federal expenditures in 1995, Social Security together with Medicare (federally founded health program aimed at helping the elderly, founded in 1965) was the largest, accounting for about 34 percent.

This is caused by the 'graying' of America and the increased number of elderly who will collect benefits for a longer portion of their lives, coupled with a reduction of the number of workers available ...

The program was designed as a social (old-age) insurance plan which provides a guaranteed income to retired and disabled workers whose loss of wages promises an uncertain economic future. I emphasize the word guaranteed, as this is the issue in content...

Would we be better off by privatizing Social Security? Or do...
