Description

Social Security is projected to be insolvent in 2035 - which means that millennials and gen z paying into the program today may never receive its benefits. Dr. Charles Blahous returns to the show to talk about how we got to this point, and a realistic plan to save the program for future generations.

Dr. Charles Blahous is the J. Fish and Lillian F. Smith Chair and Senior Research Strategist at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University, where he specializes in domestic economic policy and retirement security, as well as federal fiscal policy, entitlements, and health care programs. Blahous is the author of Social Security: The Unfinished Work and Pension Wise: Confronting Employer Pension Underfunding and Sparing Taxpayers the Next Bailout, as well as the influential studies The Costs of a National Single-Payer Healthcare System and The Fiscal Consequences of the Affordable Care Act.
