    Some countries also don't provide much benefit at all for their citizens because they have not invested in resources and infrastructure to serve their people.

    Anyway, whatever.

    If you are talking about Social Security that is an earned benefit that the government really has no logical or legal reason to downgrade because of deficit issues.  It is a completely separate fund.

    It would be like the US Federal Government deciding that they are going to reduce LLoyds of London's payouts for legitimate claims made by their insured customers in order to balance the US government's budget.

    It would be like me deciding that you - who I do not know from Adam - must take a pay cut so that I can buy a bigger car - even though the savings yielded on your pay cut won't actually pay for my bigger car.
