John...nothing wrong with the SS that Congress can't fix. Like this fiscal debacle it's all Self-imposed crisis !!!
#1 Congress -quit stealing from it ! as someone mentioned the lock-box...
#2 Congress - pay all you've stolen back ! (fat chance) - it'd be solvent to 2100 !!
#3 - take the f-ing cap off- why should those making <$110K pay 6.5% of their income into SS and those making more LESS (a smaller %)?? Someone making $1 million would pay 0.6% !!!
#4 Dems don't like this one, but we DO need to slowly increase the eligibility age... up to 70... again phase in over 2-3 decades. People are just living longer and work longer ! It's the changing times !!
So it's VERY FIXABLE... Congress just doesn't want to do their dammed job !!
