    It is no more of a Ponzi scheme than any insurance policy.

    Social Security is definitely not a ponzi scheme.

    Medicare is.

    That is the basic difference.

    One your tricked into giving your money into an investment which will only pay you back if other people invest in the future.

    The other your forced into giving money into an investment that will only pay you back if other people invest in the future.

    Wrong.

    Insurance companies use the float to invest in stocks and bonds that can be readily be sold, the SocSec "Trust Fund" has "assets" that can only be sold to the US Government (aka wampum)
