  •  The concept of a trust fund/insurance is sound (0+ / 0-)

    It's just that few seem to believe in it or trust it.  It could really be run by an actual technically competent board (not politicians).  If it is going broke it's because small adjustments in premiums (payroll taxes), benefits and eligibility have not been made as needed.  Best solution lies not with politicians but with some independent board which could make gradual changes as needed.  One of worst things Obama has done has been to partially suspend payroll taxes -- a further move to make SS just another transfer payment program.   SS is too important to leave to partisan politicians!
