Speaking on Mythbusting Fears of Social Security Insolvency – Again

Today I’m speaking to the Birmingham NEXT community organization

today.  I’ll be reprising a slightly updated version of my talk on “Mythbusting the Fears of Social Security Insolvency”.  It’s a talk I’ve given to many classes and community groups but I love it and I think it’s critical for people to hear.  So I’ll repeat the main point:  Social Security is NOT going “bankrupt”.  It will be able to pay benefits and young people are NOT being “screwed” by the program.
