    This event is a free roundtable session on Friday, February 1, 2013, Day 2 of NASI’s 25th annual research conference, Medicare and Social Security in a Time of Budget Austerity.

    Event Summary:  We often hear what pundits think about Social Security – but what do the American people think? This roundtable will discuss the implications of NASI’s new survey report, Strengthening Social Security: What Do Americans Want?, which is being released on January 31. The study used new research techniques to assess which packages of policy changes Americans prefer and how views compare across generations, income levels, and party affiliations. The findings may surprise you. Discussants will assess the implications of the report.
