The Social Security Trustees Consistently Agree: The Program is Well-Funded

Adewale Maye, Kevin Cashman

This year’s Social Security and Medicare trustees’ report saw very few changes from last year’s report and showed that the Social Security retirement program’s (OASI) financial situation had improved modestly by some measures.

Pretty sure that the statement that average REAL (meaning after adjusting for inflation) wages will be up by 52% over the next 30 years must be wrong. The average real earnings for the bottom 90% were up about 4% over the last 30 years.

One would look at non-inflation adjusted average wages anyway to see how much would be paid in Social Security taxes.

That’s the crux of it. Some politicians will say that SS is going broke. Those people need to be filleted.

That’s a much more polite way of saying, "butchered."

Isn’t it?

They need to be removed from office. Because they are promoting and disseminating a lie. It’s a monstrous lie. Millions of American rely entirely on Social Security for their very existence.

What would be the point of spending all this money on a military to protect a nation that didn’t provide the minimal standard of Social Security.

Social Security is real security, not the faked up security of Dubya Bush’s Iraq War. Social Security is the only thing keeping the USA from reaching third world status.
