The Debt Dialogues [Episode 28]: Romina Boccia on Social Security and the Millennial Generation

The Debt Dialogues is a weekly podcast that aims to educate young people about the welfare state and how it will affect their future. In this episode, I interview Romina Boccia, the Grover M. Hermann Fellow in Federal Budgetary Affairs at the Heritage Foundation, on Social Security and how it affects Millennials. Topics covered include:

  • The true costs of Social Security
  • The enormous tax hikes that will be required to pay for Social Security in the years ahead
  • How Social Security redistributes income from the young and poor to wealthy and old
  • How Social Security deprives us of the freedom to plan our own lives
