PPI’s Ben Ritz Discusses Social Security Trustees Report on C-SPAN

PPI’s Ben Ritz joined an expert panel on Capitol Hill last week to discuss the recently published report by Social Security’s trustees. The annual report projected that the program’s trust funds face insolvency within the next 16 years, after which point beneficiaries face the prospect of an across-the-board cut of 23 percent. All panelists encouraged policymakers to close the gap between Social Security’s revenues and spending sooner rather than later, which Ben noted is critical for ensuring the changes are fair to younger and older Americans alike.
