Public surveys, such as this Gallup Poll, indicate that the majority of younger Americans think that Social Security is a “dead program.” Please review the required resources for this week and address the following:
- In your informed opinion, why do so many young people have such a dim view?
- What are at least two ways that the existing Social Security program could be altered to make it sustainable long in to the future?
- What are some alternatives to the program as it is now? Should alternatives be considered? Why or why not?
Your initial post should be at least 300 words in length. Support your points with scholarly references, appropriate citations, and full references at the conclusion of your post. Cite your sources in APA format. Review several of your classmates’ posts, and then, provide a substantive response to at least two of your classmates by Day 7. What, if any, additional information would you like to share with them about Social Security policy and reform?
