    Sure you can, if you are a pot smoking drinker that never had to work and consequently never figured out how to, or the need for, planning. If you live for today, tomorrow is not a concern. Intelligence is irrelevant.

    Don't drag me into your personal quabble. I suggest some studies are run and a very light hand is used for any changes. The system has been working for roughly 70 years.

    I, for one, do not want it in the hands of Wall Street thieves. I also want to see it insulated from political fools who think they are smarter than everyone else.

    I thought you might be a political spin doctor and now I am 90% sure, who do you work for I want to write to them and tell them how good you are. What are you going to do for a job after the 2012 elections, you do realize that 7 years of the Bush era tax cuts did not fuel hiring in the USA so finding a new job is going to be tough. I keep telling unemployed young college grads that Walmart is probably a pretty good bet for long term employment but I wonder what the impact of the new deficit deal is going to have on unemployment numbers, I mean it's hard to believe that we can cut 2.9 trillion dollars from the budget and not see a lot of people lose thier jobs. I will tell you if it wasn't for us seniors who planned for our future by investing our money in SS even Walmart might find thier customer base declining.

    I guess I should not worry after all I heard the Repubs claiming that unemployment is caused by the deficit and that employers have been waiting for deficit reduction to start hiring. I can almost hear the jobs that have been moved overseas coming back to America. You know jobs create new revenue so now that we have a deficit reduction plan that will create jobs our economy should be booming in no time at all

    I dont think we have to worry about any of it. No one is coming after social security. No one is assaulting it. Even when social security is 'on the table' it will be to review potential for abuse and inefficiencies. Every election cycle the scare out the vote effort fires up again. Frankly...its tiresome...not a little bit embarrassing...and seniors should be tired of it.

    Again...the OP had nothing to do with senior citizens.

    My grandma needs to stop be lazy and living on the taxpayer dime. I don't care she fell and broke her arm, her legs still work. She can deliver mail or something, of course for UPS and NOT the USPS and she better not even think of joining a union. She doesn't need to go from one government teet to the other.

    Thanks for providing yet more unsubstantiated opinion there Mr. internet guy!

    The Ryan plan provides an opt out which reduces the fund that has made SS one our most successful programs, and "The plan, by Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), would reduce benefits by gradually raising the retirement age and gradually trimming benefits for the top 70 percent of earners."

    "Together, the two provisions would slice initial benefits by about a quarter for middle-income Americans who turn 65 in 2050, according to the analysis."

Recently, House Speaker John Boehner called for cuts to benefits."

    Re: Are Seniors Lazy Parasites

    What gets me is those in favor of privatization of Social Security say the reason for doing so is that the current system is "too" safe and much more money can be made by turning it over to Wall Street. If this is the case, why do they always, usually in the same breath, say that benefits must be cut? According to them turning it over to Wall Street will make money fall out of the sky. And it probably would, for their buddies on the Street, that's why benefits would need to be cut, those guys sure don't work cheap.
