    for SS, thats not how Govt financing works.  The US dollar is a fiat currency that only the Congress can create.  Nobody ever worries about running out of money for defense, its only the stupid so-called "trust fund" that allows the illusion of SS running out of money to endure.  Just fund a national retirement program and be done with it.  Get the money from the same place all money comes from, nowhere

    MMT = Reality
