Issues > Social Security
The Social Security system is projected to run out of money some time in the future because we are living longer, we have fewer Employees paying for each Retired person, etc.
The current administration has identified this as a serious problem and proposed that it may be solved in the "Out years" by allowing younger people to invest some of the money that they currently are required to put into the US government system into private investments. The details of this are yet to be worked out.
