Without changes in how Social Security is financed, the surplus is projected to run out in 2035, according to the latest annual report from the program's trustees.

Even then, Social Security won't be broke. It will still collect tax revenue and pay benefits. But it will only bring in enough to pay 80 percent of scheduled benefits, according to the latest estimate. To avoid that outcome, Congress would need to take steps to shore up Social Security's finances, as it did in 1983, the last time the program nearly depleted its reserves. The steps then included raising the full retirement age (see Myth #2), increasing the payroll tax rate and introducing an income tax on benefits (see Myth #8).

G .. how da fuq does that make me feel better?

2.85 TRILLION SURPLUS as of 2021 will be wiped out in 14 years?

Only pay 80% of its scheduled benefits?

If that shit is supposed to hit he fan in 2035 .. there wont be shit left over for me in the year 2049 when I (hopefully) turn 70.

Dang it .. its WORSE than I feared.

Am I reading this article wrong?
As A-Rod would say, Relax.

The Gov't would have to go full retard to let the shit hit the fan on SS.

Deadlines spur action. So don't count on any serious reform until they have to.

Pretty straight forward
The gaslighting in the article is what fake news is made of. Darcy is a joke.

Let’s review the facts:

1. Hunter laptop story was NOT Russian disinformation campaign. CNN, NBC, Politico, ABC, NYT, Wa Post all spread misinformation stating it was. Another fake news narrative.
2. Twitter incorrectly censored the NY Post story which was true. Jim Baker, ex FBI top lawyer and Twitter council pushed for the censorship under a incorrect guidelines of hacked info. They never contacted anyone to verify if was hacked material.
3. Roth and Twitter was in regular contact with FBI to remove content they didn’t like…not content that was wrong
4. Roth communicated on “message deleting apps” with the FBI and other intelligence agencies
5. Roth and others shadow banned conservatives and politicians which restrict reach. Twitter under oath previously denied this.
6. Adam schift asked back channel Twitter executives for a journalist to be suspended directly. Democrats had back channel access to Twitter executives
7. Twitter banned the President, while allowing Iran supreme leader to call for the destruction of Israel on Twitter to remain. Other South American and Africa leaders had called for political violence, those accounts remained.
8. There was no major Russian Twitter campaign operations about the elections in 2020 or 2016.

The Twitter Stasi is dead and their bodies were on display yesterday. Those folks looked like an embarrassment

Chico .. nobody and I mean nobody gives a shit about twitter, what twitter does, what twitter did. A private company operating on whatever terms they want. No body gives a shit except you, MTG and a few other hold outs.

Majority of Americans are tired of hearing all the whining from the far right MAGAs about "lame stream media is sooo unfair to me, no person has been treated more unfairly by the media then by me in the history of the human race"

cry cry cry whine whine whine .. the far right crying for years about being attacked, targeted, treated unfairly .. suck it buttercups

I doesn't . I'm old enough to take it but waiting till 70(3 years). It's reality so many lies out there, the facts need to be shown. All joking aside I was young and didn't give a shit and then got older and thought cool it's a retirement supplement. Medicare, everything has gone through the roof. I had a retirement plain but the cost of living over the last 10 years and the Market has killed it.

Six hour hearings about Twitter and who got their feelings hurt because they said dumb shit and got booted... surely there are more pressing issues facing the country right now. It's all theatrics and bullshit.

Documents and evidence were entered into record which showed the government and a private entity working to censor speech That highly illegal. I think it’s good to see this bubbling to the top.

Putin would agree, shadow banning and reducing the reach of political rivals across a large social media app would be great.

Social media, social media influence is one of the biggest issues in the country.

Re: The Most Fresh & Cordial Political Thread Ever

What entitlements (non SS or medicare) can be massaged?

SNAP (food stamps) - floating idea of making it a work requirement if you arent disabled or with young child.

Id be for that .. but how much does that save? A tiny drop in bucket?

Plus 4 of top 5 states w population on food stamps are red:

- New Mexico (whopping 21.49% on food stamps?!)
- Louisiana
- Mississippi
- Oklahoma
- Alabama

-----------------------

Conservatives are going to have a hard time finding things they can cut .. that their own constituents dont rely upon

What?? Are you serious? .. twitter is your biggest issue? News flash .. being on social media is a choice. I choose to not have twitter, facebook etc.

if you dont like twitter or tik tok .. use your god given american right to not go on twitter.

I just solved the biggest problem in your life.

-----------------
Real actual issues to me?

Border/immigration? yes real issue conseravtives can harp on

Health care? no one wants to touch that

Affordable housing? .. nobody in congress talks about this

Wages increasing w inflation? big issue .. fed workers and contractors get pay bumps all the time to reflect actual inflation .. private sector gets shit on while ocmpanies made B in profits

affordable college/trade schools -- nobody does shit

^^ these are my middle class issues .. and the govt is worried about dick photos on hunters laptop, twitter and what bathroom 0.0009% of our population uses

Re: The Most Fresh & Cordial Political Thread Ever

Problem is plenty of people on food stamps also work. Or there's a good reason why they don't work, like they're collecting disability.

Problem also lies with people not earning enough $$ to get off these programs. No reason why someone working full time should also need food stamps, in that case the tax payers are basically subsidizing these employers.

Living wage. Many work , some two Jobs and still can't make rent let alone save for retirement . At $50,000 do you think you can make , rent , utilities and food now a day? You can't. Rent , car payments ,Insurance ,utilities didn't even mention student loans and if you're lucky maybe some roman noodle's at night.
