    Right..... so..... if there is nothing to support them with.... and the government already spent it.... where is the government going to get the money from to increase social security? Is it going to use magic?

    Yo' Bubba, where you been. Ain't you never heard of helicopter Ben. Now, it gonna be helicopter Janet. There are probably new printing presses on order as we speak. It's even better than that. Just print the Treasury Bonds and make an electronic notation at the FED. Magic, don't ya' know?

    There is no magic in making money disappear, the magic is in getting it to reappear....

    As of currently we should start cutting some funding from parts of the government, say the retirement funds from the politicians. The people who have been paying for their social security deserve to get their moneys worth, not just to be put off year after year or just overlooked completely because these same politicians who spent all of that money want extravagant retirement at the cost of hundreds or thousands of other people's retirements.

    Cool. Now you've put off the collapse of Social Security and having those people wake up with nothing by a grand total of about 45 seconds. What else?

    Precisely. Which is why I wonder at all these folks who somehow think that Social Security can just "be there". The money is already spent. But they keep on talking about how unpopular reforming Social Security would be, as if through the sheer power of insistence they can make the money reappear.
