This week on Off the Charts, we discussed Social Security and its accomplishments in connection with its 75th anniversary tomorrow, federal aid to states in the jobs bill that the House passed this week, why President Bush’s tax cuts for high-income households should expire on schedule, and how the health reform law will affect seniors.
On Social Security, Kathy Ruffing posted two key facts each day about the program. Click here to see all ten in a report we released today.
On the Bush tax cuts, Chuck Marr discussed why a recent vote in the Senate serves as an “ominous warning” to those concerned about the nation’s fiscal future. He also explained how the wealthy are more likely to benefit from extending the “middle class” tax cuts than even middle class households.
On the health reform law (i.e., the Affordable Care Act), January Angeles sat down with us to discuss what seniors should know about the new law.
