It’s no secret that Social Security is underfunded, and many Americans are struggling to scrape by on their monthly benefit checks.
Now, congressional leaders have raised a key question on reforming the program.
“Should we vote now or should we kick the can down the road?” said Rep. John Larson, D-Conn., during a House Ways and Means Social Security subcommittee meeting this week.
Larson, who serves as chair of the subcommittee, posed the question to Julian Blair, a Washington, D.C., resident, retiree and veteran, who testified during the hearing.
“Congressman, I say we should have voted yesterday,” Blair said.
