“Fixing Social Security: Recommendations of the Citizen Cabinet” is a comparative analysis of the results of Citizen Cabinet surveys nationally and in the states of Oklahoma, Maryland and Virginia on the looming Social Security shortfall.
In all three states, large majorities – overall and for both parties – chose options that would cover at least 66 percent of the shortfall. The report contains statewide results as well as district breakdowns in OK-4 and MD-7. Also included are the numbers from a national survey conducted in July, 2013, which reported similar findings.
Along with the final recommendations, pro and con arguments on the various policy choices are also presented and broken down by state, district and party affiliation. Also included are a few quotes from Citizen Cabinet participants in the three states, who offered some thoughts after completing the survey.
