  •  Yeah the models they use to forecast the program's (0+ / 0-)

    performance show what I call "a snake swallowing an elephant."  It's not a GOP reference.  It's the sheer volume of the baby boomer generation which will eventually taper off.  If the model is carried forward far enough it shows.  That's part of what was in the back of my mind about the $2.5 trillion.  It will continue to grow for a while too and it will help improve the capacity of the system to absorb the baby boomers.  It's probably not enough but it's far too much to let the vultures take it.
