4. Social Security began as "social insurance" during the Great Depression and has morphed into

 

something some people depend upon as complete retirement support.

When "complete retirement support" is defined as the "poverty threshold" or more it makes debate challenging.

I'm not sure the programs for funding Social Security have kept pace with that change.
