Republicans have been spreading the rumors for almost 75 years now that Social Security is going broke. That its a failed Democratic program.
Any politician failing to support SSA, SSI, Medicare, is signing his/her political death certificate. These programs will live as long as 'Tax breaks for the rich live', or Pay raises for our representatives live, or 'Pork' pet projects for my district live, or as long as I can't get reelected without the senior and disabled vote.
No, in all 75 years, the Social Security Act. has never declaired bankruptsy, it can't, but plenty of private enterprise on the stock market, has folded, and thats the newest wrinkle, Privatization of Social Security, put your SS money in the stock market, and oops!! The company went broke..... sorrrrry!!! Work till you die, the quicker the better, but who will hire you at 80yrs old?
Government finds money for the programs that it has to have, like I pay my electric bill, neither one of us enjoys paying the bill, but.....
One of the commandments is Honor thy father and thy mother, that it may go well with thee.... Jesus said "For God commanded, saying honor thy father and thy mother: and he that curseth father or mother, let him die the death. But ye say, Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother, It is a gift, by whatsoever thou mightist be profited by me; And honor not his father or his mother, he shall be free. Thus have you made the commandment of God, of none effect, by your tradition. Matt.15:3-6
