Long-time opponents of Social Security spun wild yarns about the debt and deficit this summer, and during the run-up to the so-called â€œfiscal cliffâ€. Ignoring ten years of war and tax cuts for the wealthy (both purchased on the national credit card), as well as a pandemic of Wall Street greed that nearly sunk the American economy, they pointed their finger at Americaâ€™s last stronghold of economic safety: Social Security.
Now, one well-known economist has had enough â€“ and heâ€™s visiting Washington state to talk about how to defend and improve Social Security for future generations.
Please join us at a forum to hear economist Dean Baker talk about the challenges and opportunities facing our Social Security system, on February 20 from 5:30 â€“ 7:00 PM at the University of Washington-Tacomaâ€™s Philip Hall.
