The "Menu of Pain" required to fix Social Security

Increase Federal Income Taxes by 69
Increase Payroll Taxes by 95
Cut Federal Purchases by 106
Cut Social Security and Medicare by 45

Alternate Source

All of this just to keep afloat a program that was never meant to last longer than a decade or so.

This is a government report, commissioned by the fed then buried by the fed. It's not going to go away. From every "front runner" candidate all I hear are plans to spend even more from defense to universal health care.

So how's that going to work if even after doubling taxes we have to cut current programs/spending more than in half and some altogether?

Its called the truth that no palliation will ever have the guts to do.
Its kind of depressing but nothing will happen until pay checks start bouncing.

Well one way to fix social security is to tell the government to keep their fat, stubby, sticky fingers out of it. And payback all of what they have taken for other things. On my pay stub it says social security not social security and other things.

When it come to social security I personally think all those who pay into it should be entitled to get everything back plus interest. No more.
But like I said above, no politischen will have the guts to do what will have to be done.
