Republicans working to save Social Security disability
Representative Paul Davis Ryan (Republican of Wisconsin), the chairman of the House of Representatives ways and means committee, called a meeting on July 9 in a bid to figure out initiatives and measures that would make it possible to resolve the diminishing funds of the Social Security Disability program, the Huffington Post reported.
Ryan said he wants to prevent the reduction of 20% of Social Security disability benefits that the 11 million recipients of the program may be subjected to next year should the program’s funds continue to stagnate.
Although Congress is working to solve the disability program’s issues, they passed a legislative rule that would prevent the transfer of funds from the retirement program.
