    SS was used instead on dealing with the climate crisis and fighting back by employing people all over the Country, FDR style, rebuilding and retooling the infrastructure to be one that can survive the inevitable changes from our changing climate.

    That kind of stuff doesn't even end up in official discussions about our economic situation and to my knowledge absolutely no lone member of the Democratic Party, in the entire history of Social Security, has ever tried this hard to get changes to SS, changes that always amount to cuts to its beneficiaries.

     Cuts in benefits to people in the most successful, most popular, and most needed govt. program in its history and obviously Obama's efforts to get those cuts ain't over yet.
