    Unless .... you're advocating for expressionless, unhelpful, unimaginative, automatons who are just collecting a paycheck?
    Can you say that after they went on this trip, they are most productive on a system that is doomed to fail?

    Even EVERY CREDIBLE economist has said that Social security will fail, so please enlighten me on the productivity they will do in response to this trip on a system that will fail?

    Please enlighten us all.

    1.) Nope, but neither can you say they are not. I'd say they are likely more productive.

    2.) Most economists do not say SS will fail, and do not even say it is in trouble in the near, or medium term. Medicare on the other hand is in big deep doo doo.

    I canj say that since SS is destined to fail, a trip like this is fruitless.

    You'll have to quote me those economists, because most say that SS is destined to fail.

    So go ahead and quote me those that say SS is destined to keep on going.

    $700k?

    I wonder if that includes the money spent on hookers.

    The sad part is most are right on it being a a good deal. They would have to convince each other to give a hand job to one another;.

    Hookers would have been extra on that expense.
