A popular Social Security bill is being considered once again.
The Social Security Enhancement and Protection Act comes from Congresswoman Gwen Moore. This bill has a couple of important points that could have a big impact on the program.
The first point is that it would strengthen benefits for low-income individuals. The other is that it would categorize some childcare as a job. This means that the years a person spent taking care of a young child could count as credit toward benefits. It would also impact older seniors and other groups like certain students.
