Social Security Solvency

My views on Social Security are simple. I believe the retirement age should remain the same, that taxes should not be increased to benefit the program, the program should not be privatized and above all, the program should be protected.

Recent news has shown that Social Security is funded through 2037, yet a closer look reveals the program will also run deficits this year and next, with a permanent deficit in 2015. As a businessman, the word deficit does not exist in my vocabulary - it is up to Congress to take this word out of their vocabulary and ensure long-term sustainability.
