According to the figures you summarized (The OASDI will go from 100% of benefits payed out to 77% in 2033, while the DI trust fund will go from 100% to 81% in 2016), is there a way to address that shortfall sans congressional action, given the fondness congress has for can-kicking problem avoidance?

Will the beneficiaries of these programs be informed why they are suddenly receiving a smaller check? And will there just be a universal cut across the board, or will some people be prioritized over others?

More speculative: if you had your druthers, what social safety net programs would you like to see implemented?

Also- what programs do you believe should be getting more attention than they currently are?

Sorry for the barrage of questions. Looking forward to this AMA!
