    of poor people life expectancy is falling.

    The ratio of workers to retirees is irrelevant.  Wages are what matters.  10 people making 110k obviously support more people on SS than 20 people making 10k.

    Instead of paying wages subject to SS, corporations are paying huge CEO salaries and dividends to share holders.

    That's what's "wrong" with our current Social Security model - it was designed for a moderately exploitive economic system rather than the full blow psychopathic hell hole we're living in.
