Social Security Changes Later Rather Than Sooner
President Obama had promised reform and change to Social Security while on the 2008 Presidential Campaign trail. With his first 30 days in office complete, it seems that his plans for Social Security are being stalled.
According to many reports, President Obama was looking to seek a bipartisan solution to improving the current flaws in the Social Security system. With the economy in its current recession, many democrats are urging Obama that now is not the time. Democrat lawmakers believe that to overhaul the system would require a massive political push that would use up too much political capital. They believe that it would be fiercely contested between Republicans and Democrats, and are urging reform in other areas like healthcare instead of Social Security.
It is unfortunate that Social Security can been seen as a political game, whenever many people rely on it to get by.
