    I don't have a problem with that, really, but how could that even work? In order to pay interest, you'd have to take it from other contributors, wouldn't you? It's not like SS is a money making investment.

    There is no good reason why those just entering the workforce should have to pay the elderly because they borrowed money from themseleves and spent it.

    Well yes indeed.

    You assume I'm a liberal poking fun at conservatives.

    When I'm actually just a dude with no political affiliation poking fun at a view point that I don't associate with level minded people like your self that have chosen a political label which you're actually associating that viewpoint with... not me.

    Then how are we going to pay current beneficiaries or finance the shortfalls "investing it" would create in the general fund?

    You're not politically liberal?
