Seeking Middle Ground on Social Security Reform

This book looks at both the Republican and the Democratic Party plans for Social Security, showing how each confronts significant ideological and political hurdles. The "clash of policy concepts—social insurance versus wealth creation" has made the Social Security question seemingly unsolvable in today's political climate. Should the nation use budget surpluses to support the program? Should different means of funding, of calculating benefits, of eligibility be developed? Building from the partisan positions, Koitz looks at compromises that address the question of what can be done to "save" Social Security, to provide both for current retirees and for future generations of workers.
