  •  As I recall, Social Security... (15+ / 0-)

    was not designed for prefunding but rather pay as you go. We babyboomers were forced to pre fund because of the dire straits SS was in in the early '80s. We are not in any such dire straits today. The idea that Rethugs will ever end their efforts to shred the safety net seems very naive to me. Your willingness to trade some short term benefits for long term damage to SS is a mistake IMHO.

    Just another faggity fag socialist fuckstick homosinner!

      but without being able to say "look, SS needs help!" they don't have as strong a position going forward.

      it may not be in dire straits today right now, but do you feel something needs to be done long term?  what about the population dynamics?
