The first of many… Boomer files for Social Security
How long before Politicians on both sides of the aisle commit to reforming Social Security. Ignoring the problem will not make it go away, and delaying action to fix it only makes the cost to fix it increase.
I seem to recall the President saying that to fix Social Security everything was on the table, he just couldn’t get Democrats to sit at the table to discuss it…
Now that the first of the boomers are begining to enter retirement the problem is only going to get worse and the fix for the problem more expensive….
Thank the Democrats for refusing to even sit down and discuss it.

Kathleen Casey-Kirschling was born New Year’s Day 1946, at one second past midnight, making her the first baby of a new generation.
Raised on “Howdy Doody” and hula hoops, she danced on “American Bandstand.” Her first husband served in Vietnam. And in later years, she prospered like many of her classmates — the baby boomers.
“I just happened to be the first. The first of many,” Casey-Kirschling said.
Today, she reached another milestone — she became the first baby boomer to sign up to receive Social Security payments.
“It’s a great feeling to know that after all these years of working and seeing that taken out of your check that actually you’re getting it back,” she said.
Trouble is, 80 million others are right behind her. Casey-Kirschling is the raindrop that’s about to become a tidal wave.
