House Hearing Focuses on Program Finances

Last week, the House Ways and Means Subcommittee on Social Security held a hearing on Social Security’s finances. The hearing looked at current expenditures, proposed changes to future benefits, and the impact on the program, future beneficiaries, workers, and the economy. Witnesses discussed a variety of proposals, including raising the retirement age, removing the payroll tax cap on high-income earners, and lowering annual cost-of-living increases by adopting a different measure of inflation known as the chained-CPI.
