Why Social Security & Medicare Are NOT in Crisis

Dr. Jack Rasmus Presentation to the Progressive Democrats of America, San Francisco, February 28, 2013 (36 min 13 sec)

Jack Rasmus exposes the lies perpetrated by Politicians and Media about the financial state of Social Security and Medicare today. He offers alternative small tax changes that would instead lower the retirement age, increase retirement benefits, fully fund Medicare Part B and D, and create a surplus to pay for Medicare for All (Universal, Single Payer Health Care). He explains how neither of these programs, nor the country itself, are 'broke' but that trillions of dollars are instead being hoarded by the rich and corporations, who are trying to make retirees pay for the economic crisis and deficits they created.
