The results of November, 2018 elections are known.  The U.S. budget deficit, as a result of tax reform legislation and new military and domestic spending initiatives, is projected to increase significantly over the next fiscal year.  Social Security has announced the largest cost-of-living increase in recent memory for 2019.  The budget hawks (where have they been?) are now calling on Congress to rein in the projected federal budget deficits.  The President is talking about “closing down the federal government” . . . once more.  And social programs again appear to be targeted to balance the federal budget.  What should retirees be concerned about looking at over the next two years? 

Please join us in welcoming Ms. Lisa Lamkins, Advocacy Director, AARP Wisconsin, as she discusses “Federal Budget Implications for the Future of Medicare and Social Security”.
