There are three ex officio cabinet secretaries among the six Trustees. None of them being the Secretary of Commerce. Plus Obama has the co-authors of two very prominent plans for Social Security right on hand in the persons of Peter Orszag and Jeff Liebman. Frankly the idea that a conservative Republican from the 'Live Free or Die' state was slated to take on a lead role on Social Security is somewhat bizarre.

'If wishes were fishes' and so on. But like 'hope', 'wish fulfillment' is not a plan.

Hi, I've got the details on what is going on inside of Social Security. I am the first person that has been in the system, back out for fifteen years then successfully reentered the system. SOMEONE CLAIMED MONEY IN MY NAME EVERY MONTH FOR FIFTEEN YEARS!
In addition, there is evidence of another person's terminated account still paying somewhere at the twenty year mark.
I've got a fraudulent Inspector General report, verified as fraud by Special Agent Roland Maye, Agents Scott and Wilson in the Baltimore SSA OIG> Investigations were stopped at HHS OIG, Senate Finance Committee, House Ways and Means Subcommittee on SSA, FBI and Secret Service.
I've got an ongoing SSI account right now, tied into a second subsidized Medicare Part D account.
There appears to be an organized system inside the SSA running a " ghost system" completely tied into subsidized Medicare plans.
I've got 2150 pages of details and would love to share em with you.
