There's been an odd prevalence for some on the left - Elizabeth Warren, for example, and Paul Krugman - to be promoting Social Security as a government program we should be spending <i>more</i> money on.
One of the earliest pieces of literature that contributes to the history of Social Security is Time Magazine’s Pie from The Sky, an account of a House Committee hearing called to deal with “reforming” Social Security. The hearing was held four years after passage of the Act and before even a single check was written to old age beneficiaries.
