    If we don't shore up Social Security... a 25 percent across-the-board benefit cut kicks in on current seniors in the middle of their retirement.
    that Ryan would be PLEASED for retirees to get hit with an across-the-board 25% benefit cut.   Isn't reducing the dreaded entitlements his avowed goal?

      If we do nothing, and things are as bad as they claim, in a decade or so the SS benefits will be cut by 25%. What have they proposed doing to address this? Cutting benefits by 25+% and raising the retirement age. Huh.
