It's not the beneficiaries' fault that these programs are in trouble.

And, with any representative that is elected, we should know beforehand the outcome of their actions while in office?

I've no idea if you, yourself, have contributed to either Social Security or Medicare, But, I will bet that you will expect a return on whatever your retirement investments are. Why is it wrong to expect that, that we have paid for?

I have contributed to both, since I have worked daily for over 40 years. I think that you misunderstood my post about SS and Med. My point was about re-electing people who have dipped into our SS funds to spend on other projects, and created a bloated bureaucracy to manage the programs.

I understand now and agree wholeheartedly with you. I didn't connect your reference to "People" as "People" being politicians.

just checking on my prediction from March. So far, the constitution is being ripped apart .... Kerry just signed a preliminary arms agreement with the UN that if finally passed, will bypass our constitution and UN will have sayso over our gun rights.

While administrative cost are to be considered the problem with Social Security is that it was sold as a personal account that you pay into and withdraw from your “lock box” at retirement: the world’s greatest ponzi scheme.

The truth is all the dollars you pay in are dumped into the General Fund and are withdrawn by the government and replaced by IOU’s. The second part of the problem going forward is that at the time it was initiated it was assumed that the population would continue to grow so there would always be a new round of workers paying into the system. It did not foresee the “baby boom “ of the 1950’s nor the economic catastrophe causing job loss coinciding at the present time. So we have more people receiving their Social Security than people paying into it.

I still stand by this prediction. 75% of coal fired power plants have or are in the process of shutting down. Obama is collapsing the coal. industry.
