ABSTRACT
The article discusses the bipartisan Social Security compromise announced January 15, 1983 in the U.S. The compromise bill contains provisions for back-door general revenue financing for the social security fund, primarily through tax hikes, and expanding the scope of social security to include employees of non-profit organizations and new federal employees. Representative Claude Pepper (D-Ala.) is happy with the compromise bill. Others like Senator Pete Domenici (R-N.M.) warn that the bill would unlikely solve the social-security system's long-term problems.
