    more recipients that payors, and never will be.

    Under current projections, we'll hit 2.3 payors to 1 recepient in 2050.

    The trust fund will not "run out".  If absolutely nothing is done and the worst case scenario for economic growth occurs, we'd be 23% short in 2050.

    You're just an absolute font of innacurate justifications for selling out the American People.

    •  OK (0+ / 0-)

      I'll admit the error.

      But you admit yours, too - because your numbers aren't right, either

      It's actually 2.2 to 1, and it's 2030, not 2050.

      ...and as I said - giving away my age, I guess - the trust fund is actually exhausted the year before I would qualify for retirement benefits.

      I guess everyone's got their own blog now.

          Like I said, I'm one of those workers.

          I'm perfectly willing to make sacrifices for the common good... but come on... I really shouldn't care that those reduced benefits would essentially kick in the moment I stop being a funder and start to be a beneficiary?
