    SS is going bust because so many people are drawing payments who never paid a penny in and neither did their family because they are illegal immigrants.  The reference is to Supplemental SS which is administered by SSA but does not draw on FICA funds.  However the guy is determined I am deluded.

    The other argument is that SS is going bust; the problem is that MC is the part of the program in trouble and its shortfall could be solved by removing the cap on FICA contributions.  However Fox says SS is going bust so how do I argue back?  Answer is I can't
