We Have to Deal with Social Security and Medicare Now (Rep. Jim McCrery)

It would be hard for this issue to be clearer: Baby Boomers are poised to begin retiring in record numbers, and, without reform, Social Security and Medicare are simply not ready to continue to provide promised benefits. But the Democratic leadership in both Houses of Congress continued to ignore the demographic facts by passing budgets last month without a glimmer of an idea for improving retirement security for the American people.
