"Situation Room Scaremongering: CNN's Social Security crisis"
If CNN's Situation Room program is serious about covering Social Security fairly, they need to balance the views of Cafferty and Gergen with experts like economist Dean Baker of the Center for Economic & Policy Research, or Nancy Altman from Social Security Works, who can give viewers an informed, clearer-eyed assessment of Social Security's finances.

1. I think the income cap is more like 106K, but may be wrong NT

3. $106.8 k as I recall
But it needs to be much higher, or gone altogether.

2. Not nearly as scary as Wolf Blitzer's and Greta von Susteren's love child

4. Hey, don't worry about it: they're not at all serious about fairness and balance.
They leave those terms to Faux News. ;-)
