Closing Arguments Debating Social Security on the Radio

Richard Eskow

I appeared last week on the Bill Meyer Show, a talk radio program in Medford, OR.  It was a very useful debate, since Bill (and one or two callers) used all the standard talking points for cutting Social Security:  it’s bankrupt, it’s only IOUs, there are too many baby boomers, the worker-to-retiree ratio is disastrous, it’s a Ponzi scheme, etc. etc.

That was opportunity to rebut all of these points, so it went really well.  It got a little heated, too, which makes for better listening. (But it was always civil and respectful!)  So if you have a few minutes and want to prepare for your next holiday argument with your right-wing uncle, have a listen:
