Social Security Turns 80

Featured Audio

Social Security turns 80 this week and we turn our attention to the history and future of the nation's largest benefit program. How has Social Security changed since FDR signed it into law? What impact has it had on our society? And with a coming funding crisis -- there will be fewer workers paying for more retirees -- what can be done to shore it up. Or should Social Security be scrapped? Join our conversation, Wednesday morning at 9 on the Sound of Ideas.
