People survived before ss was around, they'd suck it up and get along just fine without it in the future.

I can't just suck it up when there are not enough jobs to go around. I have 3 different disablities. I have anxieties, depression and an immune system disorder that I was born with that makes me allegric to almost everything including fluroscent lighting. I get sicker easier, I can't stand on my feet for more than 2 hours or I get real faint. I get dizzy spells om a daily basis. I am lacking a certian antibody in my blood. I used to take shots for this. I am not sure exactly what I was called because Drs always just said in born immune defiency.
I am expecting a rasie in the cola next year of at least 1%.
The solution would be for them to stop borrowing or taking from social security funds. They need put back all the money. They also need to revise the rules allowing people to work and not lose benefits. If they could up the the Social security tax to 10% on all people who make over the poverty level that could help as well if social security really is so insolvent.
