  •  Social Security is not in trouble (1+ / 0-)

    At worst in about 30 years the trust fund will use up its reserves which means it will pay out about 75% of its promised benefits. But even at that level in terms of inflation adjusted dollars it will still be more than what Social Security pays out in benefits now due to future scheduled benefit increases. . And if the economy grows at the same average rate as it did for the last 75 years there will be no shortfall at all for many decades to come. Robert Samuelson has always been against Social Security so this bullshit is nothing new from him.
