Andrew G. Biggs is a resident scholar at AEI where he studies Social Security reform, state and local government pensions, and public sector pay and benefits. On this episode of the Federalist Radio Hour, Biggs makes the case for a paid family proposal that would draw from Social Security benefits.
“The idea isn’t that this is God’s own perfect proposal for parental leave. It is a modest proposal that is designed to be self-financing,” he said. “It’s something that might actually get parental leave provided to people given the difficulties we know we have in Congress of trying to actually make legislation happen.”
Domenech and Biggs also discuss the financial disaster in Puerto Rico and the challenges they face in becoming economically stable.
