#1 Have they run out of 'entitlement' money yet?

#2 They can't have run out of entitlement money. They still have checks.

#3 Ed in T, that brought back memories!! There was a rich girl in college and late at night a whole group decided to go out to eat as students do. I begged of saying I was broke at the moment. Rich girl looks at me and says "Don't you have a check book?" She honestly had no understanding of the connection between deposits and withdrawal. Her father deposited $500 a month in her account (this was 50 years ago). That's the mindset of today's weenies.

#4 Eliminate the cap on incomes susceptible to FICA withholding, and Social Security becomes a great deal more secure. The Pig Men will really squeal when their bonuses are tapped at the same percentage as a minimum wage worker, you can count on that. Government provided pensions (which SS is NOT) are an entirely different matter.
