Main Points:

According to Ms. Janice Gregory, President, National Academy of Social Insurance, Social Security benefits are already going down in the future (without further cuts).

Benefits are modest, approximately $14,000 annually.

After paying Medicare premiums, the Social Security "replacement rate of lifetime average earnings" in 2010, was 39%.

By 2030, it will be 32%.

Neither of these rates count "taxing" Social Security benefits, so it understates the problem.
