    Yep. Remove the cap on SS taxible income, cut benifits 10%, raise the age to retire, raise SS tax 1% and make it against the law for the government to spend SS money on anything but SS.. Done deal. Now was that so hard?

    Here's a better one. Eliminate it altogether, let me keep my 6.2% and invest it in a balanced mutual fund, and I'll retire with three times as much money as I'll ever receive from SS.

    How 'bout we stop asking the government to be our parent?

    Obama has no balls.
    Grow up? Why are you such a tool?
    I gave you an easy solution to the SS problem that only involves changing numbers and making one law. How much simpler could it be?

    Ain't going to happen. 80% of the population likes SS and want to keep it.
    Anyone that believes mutual funds are a safe way to save for retirement is a fool. The only reason the stock market is up now is because the Fed has interest rates set at zero. Bonds and money markets are at 1% You people really do live in a fantasy world.

    It's simple. They just won't do it because they have no balls. It's so easy it's ridiculous.

    Hey slick, everyone has to make a sacrifice for the good of the country.
    Living in your parents basement you probably wouldn't feel the pain much anyway.

    And wasn't that the idea? Give them money, make them dependent, and you can't count on their vote every time no matter what.

    By the way, it's not 80 percent if you ask folks under the age of 45.
