Commissioner of Social Security

National debt—it’s a pretty big problem and a pretty unpopular subject for politicians— Republicans like to use it as a lightning rod against Dems; Dems like to say they’ll reign in spending but don’t want to talk about slashing social security benefits. Enter Social Security commissioner Michael J. Astrue—he joins Patt to talk about the future of social security in a country with a growing, aging population, and also explains the new online system his office has devised to streamline the benefits process.

Guest:

Michael J. Astrue, Commissioner of Social Security
