    A false statement....from one who has ,evidently, not accepted social security......nor the basic equality of man...Fortuniately, the Ebenezer Scrooges do die off and are sometimes replaced with Bob Crachets..And our society improves.....but this takes time....

    So this is Catawba's arguing point? That the Dems have placed the elderly in fear so much that the GOP "wants to take away their money", so they brainwash, delude, and bold-face lie about their counterpart in an effort to scaremonger the populist vote?

    Wow. I'd brag about that.

    Not our fault. Democrats do well at scaring the old farts into thinking their checks will go away when they won't.

    My worry is that when all the Freds and Ethels die off, other ignorant old people will take their place.

    Seems to me there are many suggestions from both sides as to how to deal with SS - among them is the reduction of benefits and raising the age for retirement.
    If you want to save your precious program, you need to get it into your head that outlays MUST be reduced. Anything else is simple folly.
    Enjoy your folly...

    Every poll I have ever seen on the subject has very strong numbers saying that the majority wants to protect Social Security.

    If you want to save your precious program, you need to get it into your head that outlays MUST be reduced.
    Perhaps you have never taken an accounting course, but there are two sides to a budget - INCOME - which is the money coming in and EXPENSES - the outlays your refer to. Your comment above seems to indicate you are only aware of one side.

    And, in their place, add hundreds of billions of dollars to the debt, all in the name of job creation, with nothing to show for it.
