It’s probably a bit of both, but I think government “borrowing” the funds is the biggest issue. Reagan and Greenspan gave it to the American people prison style with no lube.woody b wrote: ↑Sat Jun 09, 2018 1:09 pmDo you actually read the crap you post? 1st you say SS is going broke because we don't contribute enough. Then you basically agree with me that SS is going broke because they keep taking money from the SS trust fund for other things. Which is it? Do we not contribute enough to SS or is money we contribute to SS being used to fund corrupt politicians pet projects? Make up your mind. You can't have it both ways.j-c-c wrote: ↑Sat Jun 09, 2018 12:05 pmBecause they were too afraid/dishonest to raise taxes, so they pulled the old hat trick, while upgrading stop signs, buying expensive security theater to keep the public "safe" , etc, etc. Didn't hear many complain about all the gov spending while they were at the feeding trough.
Well the rooster has come home. Take it like a man. There is no free ride.

The most ironic part to me is, most of the people who were screwed over in the worst way think Reagan was the best president ever, and don’t even enderstand what the federal reserve is.
