You absolutely described a pyramid. A ponzi scheme is where people are paid from investments from other participants without any profit. Social security is absolutely a ponzi scheme. Rather or not it can be successful for the next few decades is a different matter. I suspect that the millennial's better be ready to wait until they are past the age of 70 to be allowed to draw anything.


Easy solution. If SS is so distasteful---DON'T sign up for it.

See how easy that was!?

If they didn't, that's their problem. She kept her end of the bargain.

Moral of the story: Don't spend the money people paid into the system for years. If you need to pay for something, raise the taxes to do it.

It's the Republicans that are the theifs.
The only person that has ever lowered FICA tax rates is Barack Obama and the Dem Congressional super majority. SS instantly went into the red in 2010.

And the congress that voted to do this was a Democrat House and Senate.

Unless you are a pastor, or Amish, Minnoite or you work for a local Government that opts out of SS you cannot refuse to pay into SS.

Once again the Loveable Ignorant Canadian shows us his RDS is incurable

IT WAS OBAMA AND A DEMOCRAT HOUSE AND DEMOCRAT SENATE

That Chose to Privatize a portion of SS of 2 years causing the System's unfunded mandates to increase 1.5 trillion dollars in 2010 . OOPS

Yes, What Obama did was allow me to keep a portion of my SS which 99% of the people spent.. I instead invested it in the Market.
