Being within reasonable limits; not excessive or extreme
Sure wish this poll was age specific. Then we could all see the age of the person(s) voting to dissolve SS. I would venture a guess the majority for it are younger and the majority against it are older.
Uh...I'm 41...it applies to me as well as you. The likely hood of Social Security surviving 20 yrs is very slim. Had we acted ten yrs ago....or even five it could have had a chance, but as it is there are very few fixes under the current economic climate when combined with the growing influx of recipients. The system is crippled as it is, and the baby boomers are just now entering the pool.
Combine these issues with the borrowing Bush has done against the fund, and the deposits we all make every year, and its so far in the red it must collapse.
Most people just do not understand what is going to happen when the baby-boomer retirements hit full force unless their benefits are drastically cut. Why should young people have to face confiscatory tax rates to pay for old farts who spent like drunken sailors when they were in the work force.
I've been hearing the same song, "Social Security is about to collapse" for over 30 years.
Social Security will never collapse. To even allow it to collapse would be equivalent to mass murder with all the misery and death it would cause to place so many countless millions into the street.
The day we turn our backs on our elderly is the day humanity no longer deserves to continue as a species.
