There's a preventable crisis facing America, and yet neither of the major-party candidates has said much, if anything, about it. To that point, the words "retirement" and "Social Security" have not been uttered in the first two presidential debates.
Let's see what happens in the final debate on Wednesday night.
The fast-approaching retirement crisis, and the fact that a majority of Americans don't have nearly enough money saved for the future, should be discussed by Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. This final debate should address what can be done about Social Security. What about Medicare? And what can be done about the retirement savings shortfall?
A little background: According to the Social Security Administration, there are roughly 45 million retirees in America, and some 10,000 people over the age of 62 leave the workforce every single day. Figuring lifespans and attrition, at this rate, there will be more than 72 million retired Americans by 2030.
