It has been 39 years since Congress has taken action to change Social Security.
Some House Democrats are hoping to change that with a bill to improve benefits that has been revamped and reintroduced in Congress.
On Tuesday, a House Ways and Means Social Security Subcommittee held a hearing to consider a proposal titled Social Security 2100: A Sacred Trust.
The hearing marks the eighth Capitol Hill session on the issue since 2019, according to Rep. John Larson, D-Conn., chair of the Social Security Subcommittee, who recently introduced the legislation with Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn.
