Liberals Fight Bipartisan Effort on Social Security

“Divorce this conversation about deficit reduction from Social Security and making it a better program!” Rep. Xavier Becerra, D-Calif., told a group of Social Security advocates on Capitol Hill Thursday, according to The Hill. Becerra, the ranking member of the House Ways and Means Social Security subcommittee, was a member of the fiscal commission but voted against its recommendations.
