Time To Reform Social Security

How many years have you heard this issue in the last decades?

Our cowards in Congress keep upping the age so that you pay and pay and die before you can collect.

To the GOP it means to gut the system and make it invalid.

To Dems it is to expand and fund the system.

BTW, the Social Security system is going broke because Congress is a spineless group that has done the most to make the system a failure….that includes both parties.

But it is getting to the point that we are running out of time to make the needed reforms to save and expand the system.

he Congressional Budget Office warned this week that the Social Security Trust Fund will be exhausted within 10 years, and a federal budget expert is urging Congress to take action before it is too late.

In a report titled “The Outlook for Major Federal Trust Funds: 2020 to 2030,” the CBO also warned that the Highway Trust Fund will be depleted by the end of next year.

“We know how to fund highway trust funds, you know, you raise the gas tax or you change the distribution of highway spending,” Marc Goldwein, senior vice president and senior policy director at the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, told Just the News. “We know what to do about Social Security, you adjust the retirement age, you increase the amount of income subject to the tax. We know the options here. We just need the political will to come to an agreement, and we’re running out of time.”

Policies are killing the only retirement some Americans will ever have….tax cuts and tax breaks have done more to kill the system than any one person…..

  1. Same thing happened here. Julie should be collecting her state pension next year, when she reaches 60. Then they changed the qualifications, and she has to wait an additional 7 years until her 67th birthday. Rumour has it that next year, the age will increase to 70 for those born after 1969.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Sounds like the reforms planned for here as well…I got to retire at 62 Sue had to wait until she turned 65 to get her benefits….all to save money while pissing it away on wars….good plan chuq
