And of course nobody seen this coming until the last 10 years. WRONG every politician knew this was coming and instead of addressing it 40 years ago they continued to sweep it under the rug thinking it was just going to disappear?? Now the libs and cons are panicing as well they should, but to suggest that SS will be taken away and people will just have to live in the streets is laughable if it wasn't the direct threat of some legislators---"It was never the peoples money to begin with and can be taken at any time" In my school district we have faced levy increases everyother year for the last 8 years but yet you say there is a reduction in students and those in favor of the levys are telling the people they need bigger and newer schools because of the increasing population of students---somebody is dishing out BS here. After passing a huge levy to build a new shcool the attendance has increased by 21 students over the past 3 years!!! Once we get our elected officials to start telling us the truth maybe this country can get turned in the right direction but not the way thins have been in the last decade. Lie and then lie again to cover up the last lie---"America The Beautiful", yeah right..........
