    The 2016 Labor-HHS-Education bill that the House Appropriations Committee is considering today would continue to force the Social Security Administration (SSA) -- whose work touches nearly every American's life -- to do more with less. The 2011 Budget Control Act's (BCA) tight funding caps, further reduced by sequestration, are squeezing Social Security.

    Like many Americans, I’ve been wary of labor unions. Full-time union stagehands at Carnegie Hall earning more than $400,000 a year? A union hailing its defense of a New York teacher who smelled of alcohol and passed out in class, with even the principal unable to rouse her? A police union in New York City that has a tantrum and goes on virtual strike.

    How would you like to live in an economy where robots do everything that can be predictably programmed in advance, and almost all profits go to the robots’ owners.

    Like most federal agencies, the Social Security Administration has faced deep, across-the-board cuts in recent years. These cuts have seriously degraded the administration’s ability to service a rapidly growing customer base and forced the agency to make tough choices about its future.

    The Social Security Administration (SSA) is developing a plan of action for the next ten years. The conventional wisdom is that the next decade for SSA will feature a smaller workforce, fewer field offices, and more Internet-based customer service. Achieving the latter will require the agency to rely more on contractors.

    Need to figure out whether it makes sense to retire at 62 or 65? Wondering how much your monthly Social Security benefit will be? Been married three times and wondering what that means for your benefit? Answers have never been farther than your local Social Security office, where employees are extensively trained to give you accurate and helpful answers.

    By John Fritze, The Baltimore Sun 11:13 p.m. EDT, May 1, 2014 WASHINGTON —— A draft memo circulating at the Social Security Administration that suggests the agency could rely on the Internet to deliver most of its services is meeting with strong resistance from a labor union concerned that the idea would lead to closed field offices across the country.

    SSA’s Vision of YOU! To Bargaining Unit Employees At the request of Congress, the Social Security Administration contracted with the National Academy of Public Administration (the Academy) to conduct a study and submit a high-level plan proposing a long-range strategic vision for the Agency.

    This unique forum will proceed through seven essays—from Henry Aaron, Andrew Levison, Bob Kuttner, Bill Galston, Dean Baker, Mark Schmitt, and Will Marshall—with occasional summaries from the co-moderators, Kit Rachlis of the Prospect and Ed Kilgore of the Strategist. The distinctive goal of this forum is to offer a “progressives-only” debate on entitlements—a debate that is often avoided or distorted by the necessity to resist conservative ideological assaults on the New Deal and Great Society safety net or by media-driven elite “deficit hawk” campaigns that seem to begin with the assumption that America’s only fiscal problem stems from “unaffordable” or “runaway” entitlements.

    By JOHN BURBANK (Nov. 22, 2013) — So how about that $8.7 billion tax giveaway Boeing just received to build the 777X? We have been here before. In 2003, the Legislature excused Boeing from $4 billion in taxes, in order to build the 787 in our state. What happened to that $4 billion? Over $1 billion was used to construct a copycat 787 facility in South Carolina.
