You may have heard we can't afford Social Security. But the facts may surprise you. This video from the National Academy of Social Insurance (www.nasi.org) explains the basics about Social Security, its purpose, who pays for it, who gets it, and what it means to seniors, working families, and children now and in the future. To learn more, visit the "Learn" section of NASI's website at http://www.nasi.org/learn/social-secu....
