Social Security, America’s essential public retirement program, is on a path to depletion in less than 10 years. If lawmakers fail to act, there will be an automatic 23% annual benefit cut for all recipients. That’s a loss of about $17,400 per year for the typical retired couple.
The vast majority of voters are urging lawmakers to take action to strengthen Social Security, according to a new national poll, jointly conducted by Democratic firm Global Strategy Group and Republican firm North Star Opinion Research.
