The 2012 Trustee's Report details the exhaustion of trust fund reserves in 2033, three years earlier than projected last year ( http://1.usa.gov/Kg5KuF ). Yes, it is true that even after the fund is exhausted Social Security will be able to pay 75% of benefits, but how is being able to meet only three quarters of its obligations acceptable?
Clearly, something needs to be done and reform must take place: either by raising the wage cap, by increasing the retirement age to keep pace with longevity, by means-testing and eliminating benefits for very high income seniors, or by some combination of these proposals.
