    LOL, constant supply that is dwindling. You really have no idea, do you? Sad, SS was never intended to be paid out when it was established as the retirement age was higher than the life expectancy age. Your money has been spent on someone else, and someone else's money is going to be spent on you. That never was the intent nor is it something that you apparently understand. Light bulb go off yet?

    FFS, you simply forget how many times before we have gone over this, do I need to get the Tip ONeil quote again?

    You can cite it until hell freezes over and will never understand it in context to the situation Reagan inherited. You simply don't appear to understand that liberalism is making a fool out of you and you don't understand that the money contributed to SS is a long term obligation, it should never be spent on anything other than that obligation but has been since LBJ created the unified budget. I hope that light bulb goes off soon.

    From a place you have never been part of, reality. What is it about liberalism that creates people like you?

    That again is NOT the definition of a ponzi.

    Why do you do this to yourself? I can understand the being bored in retirement, but to make yourself look like this is just weird.

    Very interesting article that may, but I doubt, help you understand the concept of a Ponzi scheme and SS

    Social Security is Much Worse Than a Ponzi Scheme - and Here's How to End It - Forbes

    The facts about Social Security are these. Yes, itís a Ponzi scheme, thus criminally fraudulent (as Iíll explain), but even worse, because it coerces us to be a part of it. Since the scheme began in 1935 the full force of the U.S. government has compelled a growing portion of citizens to suffer by it, such that we all do so by now. A scheme of such widespread, compulsory fraud is unprecedented in U.S. history, and one of the most shameful (and popular) of FDRís schemes.

    Do you even care where the money you are forced to contribute to SS goes? Do you not understand that all the money taken into SS and Medicare each year is a future obligation and that when that money is spent on items other than your own SS it is still an obligation owed to you? Where is the money going to come from to fund the money that was spent prior to you being eligible? Light bulb gone off yet?

    understand what I posted. Suffice it to say, I never claimed the private sector gained 7 million jobs since December, 2013(?) ... nor did I say it occurred over a 6 month period.

    Learn to understand what you read so you don't embarrass yourself like that again.
    A retarded Gimp Chimpanzee in the tertiary stages of syphilus could understand the nonsense you post.

    You gave job numbers out of context, you just repeated J.Carney's lies.

    I corrected you, it was easy.

    It's not embarrassing to tell the truth, you should try it sometime.

    Reagan DID increase FICA and DID use it in his budget WHILE he tripled the debt. What that has to do with Reagan "inheriting" inflation from oil shocks is beyond me.
