Denial always solves all problems.
Until the disastrous end finally arrives, and then, all hell breaks loose.
“Social Security has an accumulated surplus of more than $2.8 trillion and can pay 100 percent of benefits for the next several decades.”
2.8 trillion in IOU’s from the government. Money has to come from somewhere—it’ll be taxes or monetization of debt.
I am so tired of all the bullsh!t.

Captain: “Well, what’s it say.”
First Officer: “They’re demanding you quit maneuvering to avoid the iceberg. They want slushies. And ‘right quick’...”

Since the SS Funds were all borrowed by the general fund and spent, the ability to pay benefits is totally dependent upon the ability to produce tax revenues to repay the debt to the SS Fund. Our current track record says that we can’t even get out of a deficit spending pattern, let alone service any debt. I give it 5 yrs at best until people realize the ponzi scheme will collapse.
