In Minnesota, the Kafkaesque existence of Haylee Rucker | AFP

Haylee Ann Rucker lives in a small rural town in Minnesota. The 19-year-old was born in the United States to American parents.But legally, she did not exist for 19 years. No passport, no driver’s license, no insurance. Rucker had none of the vital paperwork needed to lead a regular adult life because she didn’t have a birth certificate. And without that, she could not get a Social Security number, and everything got more complicated from there. The story is an absurdist tale of administrative ping-pong involving two US states, the federal government and a hospital that did not register her paperwork from the outset.

Biden: Bernie Is Lying About My Position on Social Security

Former Vice President Joe Biden has taken flack in recent weeks for saying when he was a senator that he’d negotiate with Republicans on entitlements in order to balance the budget.

On Monday, Biden tried to make clear that would never happen if he becomes president.

“There will be no compromise on cutting Medicare & Social Security, period. That’s a promise,” Biden said at the 2020 Iowa Brown & Black Presidential Forum, the nation’s oldest minority-focused presidential forum, this year presented by VICE News.
