    Why punish someone for working hard and rising above Minimum Wage. Why do you keep wanting to punish success and reward mediocrity?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Im 25 and I realized that system is going to be long bankrupt by the time I reach that age, if I get that far that is.

    Social Security already offers a negative return rate (once I factor in inflation), why on Earth would I want to give my kids and grandkids an investment that losses them money? I would much rather help them set up a retirement savings account that can at least earn a positive return for them.

    then you are opposed to having social security continue
    you should posted that position and i would not bother to have responded
    i thought this thread was initiated based on a concern about the solvency of the social security program

    It's NOT solvent, that's the point. Why waste more resources on this money pit? Cut losses and save the country.

    but there is an easy, equitable way to make it solvent, by eliminating the cap
    either you want a solvent social security program or you do not
    pick your poison
