What you, bill1952, seem to be ignoring is that the seniors permitted all of their payments to be SPENT, and not saved, by making payments to a prior generation. They permitted this despite warnings from intelligent people along the way that such a ponzi scheme was unsustainable.

Oh horseshit. We were outvoted by the same liberal trash in the same way that conservatives of all stripes are being outvoted right now, and with the same lasting damage, ie, these programs cannot be outdone.

you neatly sidestepped my entire point and shifted the blame to a straw man.

A cute dialog, but you sound like Nancy Pelosi, with the same propensity to ignore the facts stated and rail against a chimera created by you to avoid the issue stated.

If your point is that being outvoted somehow entitles you to take money from future generations, then I disagree completely. Nobody is entitled to Social Security payments. Such payments are simply theft by the government.

Democratically passed legislation to commit theft is still theft.
