Social Security is the primary United States Government social insurance program. Funded by mandatory payments based on an increasingly regressive schedule, it is a fixed benefit program for retirees, children and the disabled. It is administered by the Social Security Administration.

Social Security has been under attack from conservatives since it was first established in the 1930's. Conservatives believe that people should be able to pay for their own retirement. Liberals remember the bread lines.
