The blogs, as well as the mainstream media, have been chatting about Social Security over the past few days mostly as a result of this column from Ruth Marcus and blog response from Paul Krugman, as well as this AP story. A sampling for your pleasure:
Heading Right’s take on Krugman v. Marcus;
Clive Crook of the Atlantic, also serving as a referee; and
My DD on the language of Social Security.
There is no crisis, but Social Security needs to be there for the next generations. And this may mean tough choices that everyone should be prepared to make. Some of us are ready, now it’s time for our elected leaders to get on board.
