Social Security's projected shortfall and why Congress should act soon to fix it

  • Charles Blahous, public trustee for Social Security and Medicare and former economic advisor to President George W. Bush
  • Robert Greenstein, executive director of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities

will discuss their new paper,
Social Security Shortfall Warrants Action Soon,

and answer questions about the reality and scope of Social Security's projected shortfall.
