    Those returns are from taxpayer dollars and only add to the debt. The only way government generates returns is from taxes.

    People have been warning for years that this was going to happen and now that it has started, who's going to have to pay for the elderly bail out?
    I wish people would realize that this is cyclical. Once the mass of "boomers" die off SS will be solvent again until the next large generational wave.

    When are they going to pay? If they are not paying it back they stole the taxpayers money.

    And your rationale is?

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    For what? So SS runs a deficit, it will eventually catch up. You're not going to lose benefits so what could you possibly be waiting for?

    Obama is trying to save it through the lies that there is no inflation so no one on SS gets a cost of living raise. First time since back in the 70's.

    Please quote those lies and your sources that prove them to be lies.

    Whats to quote. No one on SS gets a cost of living raise. This makes the reason that cost of living has not increased. That means we have no inflation.

    First time this has happened since the induction of cost of living raises for SS in 1975.
