James Roosevelt On Medicare, Social Security & Efforts To Repeal Health Care
James RooseveltThe Social Security trust fund is projected to have enough reserves to be able to pay out benefits until the end of 2037. After that, experts say unless changes are made, there will only be enough money to pay out about 75 percent of scheduled benefits. That much is agreed upon. But how to achieve those changes and sure up the program – are flash points of MUCH contention. Before joining Tufts Health plan in 1999, my next guest was the associate commissioner for Retirement Policy for the Social Security Administration in Washington, D.C. In November 2008, President-elect Barack Obama appointed him to co-chair a review of the Social Security Administration. It’s those experiences – and others – that made Tufts Health Plan president and CEO James Roosevelt uniquely qualified to testify before congress earlier this month, in a hearing examining the impact Social Security has on the federal budget. Here with me now to discuss that, other entitlement programs on the chopping block, as well as efforts to repeal national health care and much more is James Roosevelt.
