...[A] promise made is a debt unpaid... — Robert W. Service
An advocacy group by the name of the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare Foundation is about to release the results of a national poll that contains some interesting information. The results, to be shared on July 15 at 1:00 pm at the U.S. Capitol Building, indicate that:
- Americans interviewed do not believe Social Security to be a major cause of the deficit, and as such should remain untouched as Congress addresses the shortfall.
- The results further state that Americans do not believe that Social Security is a drain on the economy, and that the conditions in which we currently find ourselves economically highlight a need for such a program.
- Finally, and perhaps unsurprisingly, a vast majority of Americans asserted that Social Security belongs to its contributors and their beneficiaries, and that it is a promise made to all generations which should not be broken.
