Greenspan's Social Security Proposal Under Fire

Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan has called for cuts to Social Security for future retirees. NPR's Tavis Smiley discusses the issue with Margaret Simms, an economist and senior vice president for programs at the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies, and David Keating, executive director of The Club for Growth.

The Club for Growth was incorrectly identified in the original broadcast as part of the Cato Institute. There is no relationship between the two organizations. We regret the error.
