A good idea whose time has come.

As that article says:

And lower-income Americans, in case you haven’t noticed, are the people who need Social Security most.

Sounds like its time to scrap SS totally and just call fold it up into the welfare system. Reduce the number of government programs and agencies. We could drop Medicare and Medicaid at the same time, replacing it with subsidies for the ObamaCare state exchanges.

Put everyone under the same umbrellas.
