With the next big federal budget battle looming, there’s a lot of talk this time that Social Security and other entitlement programs must be part of any debt-reduction conversation.  But other voices are pushing back, saying this is the wrong place to look for savings - given the vital importance of this program to so many Americans.

GUESTS:

  • Robert Bixby - Executive Director of the Concord Coalition, a nonpartisan organization that promotes fiscal responsibility in Washington and helps educate the public about the federal budget.
  • David Certner - Legislative Council and Director of Legislative Policy for Government Affairs for AARP.
