Community on Entitlements

Community: Entitlements

Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and Food Stamps/SNAP have been offered in the US for decades, but all seem to have issues. For instance, will the country run out of funding? Will the minimum age to take distributions be raised? Re welfare items, will the government crack-down on fraud and abuse? Change the requirements for receiving such benefits? Read up on the specifics, then add your voice to the discussion.
