    Someone has to touch it and touch it soon.

    I'm old already so nothing done will affect me. But you, if your profile is true, you're right at the cusp.

    Here is the unfunded liability up to today, 08/22/2019. I don't know about you, but to me, $125 TRILLION is a lot of money. Where's that going to come from?

    No one is saying anything about our current elderly. Raise the retirement age for those 50 and under to 70 and those 35 and under to 72. That gives them plenty of warning. I am willing to do my part and retire later. The chosen one was a tongue in cheek comment. You dislike Trump. We live in a Republic. Vote him out in 2020. It’s not overly difficult. You have yet to provide an alternative to curing the deficit. I ll Wait.

    Tongue and cheek? He looked up to the sky when he said it. He's delusional. There are WAY too many people coming out of the White House saying it. I already told you 2 ways to cut the deficit. If you can't read, me typing it over again isn't going to help.

    Same place as everything else we do not pay for. Are you paying more for Trump's bail outs? If not, why not?

    1. Medicare will go bankrupt in 2026, so the Debt Clock is bullshit
    2. SS will go into default in 2034, paying 80% of promised benefits until 2090, when it actually goes bankrupt
    3. What happens to Welfare and Medicaid? Those need to be closed to pay for "owed" benefits for Medicare and SS payees.
    4. What about the "fixes for SS & Medicare?


    A. Social Security will be unable to meet obligations (not technically "bankrupt") in 2034, paying only 79% of owed benefits, while it will be actually bankrupt around 2090.
