The only real solution economically is to just announce SS is dead, sorry no more payments.
Of course, people would completely freak out at that. Despite teh fact that keeping this going is just going to destroy the country... "I want mines". We're the generation that's gonna get FUBAR'd by SS.
I say bring on the fall at this point. Those ****ing idiots in DC pass this monstrosity called "Healthcare Reform" and the USA will collapse financially. Greed, kills.
