Expand Social Security Now! How to Ensure Americans Get the Retirement They Deserve by Steven Hill published in 2016. He makes the case that Social Security can be maintained and even expanded with benefits doubled into the indefinite future with a few, sensible adjustments. The vast majority of Americans want Social Security to continue without a cut in benefits and no age increase. The only Americans who want to gut Social Security are the super wealthy like Pete Peterson, who founded the Peter G. Peterson Foundation with a $1 billion endowment to propagandize against Social Security.
