Inglis to hold Social Security roundtable at Wofford College

February 10, 2005

SPARTANBURG, S.C. – Fourth District Congressman Bob Inglis (R-S.C.) will host “Social Security: Searching for Common Ground,” a bipartisan roundtable on Monday, Feb. 14, at Wofford College, featuring panelists who will present cases for both sides of the reform debate.

The program will be from 5 to 6 p.m. in the McMillan Theater in the Campus Life Building. The public is invited to attend; admission is free.

In addition to Inglis, the panelists will be Dr. John McArthur, chair of the Wofford College Department of Economics; Dr. Olin Sansbury, chancellor emeritus at the University of South Carolina Upstate (then Spartanburg); Andy Arnold, executive director of the Greenville County Democratic Party; Brandon Brown, former Democratic candidate for Congress; and an Atlanta representative of the Social Security Administration.

Inglis will give an overview presentation before the panel discusses the issue.

Questions to be explored will be: Who should be concerned about Social Security reform? Is there a problem with Social Security? If not, how is it to be maintained? If so, what are the possible solutions? Is there any common ground?
