Defending Social Security, with Nancy J. Altman
Nancy J. Altman, who was Alan Greenspan's assistant when he chaired the Greenspan Commission to amend Social Security in the early eighties, will give a presentation about current threats to Social Security, the nation's foremost poverty prevention program. She is the author of The Battle For Social Security, From FDR's vision to Bush's gamble, and is among the founders of Social Security Works, a national coalition formed to combat cuts to Social Security. She also currently chairs the Pension Rights Center and comes to NH just as Congress takes up this topic amid the debate over the debt ceiling and the deficit. This program is sponsored by the Alliance for Retired Americans, with support from AFSC and others. Free and everyone welcome.
