when it comes time for ME to retire? It angers me to think about the people who have taken advantage of the system for so long. I completely understand there are people out there who need funds to survive, but we all no that is not always the case. When is it going to be time for everyone to get out there, get a job and contribute to the economy? Even if you take a job at a fast food restaurant, you will still be contributing to your future, well hell, even mine. What will life be like at that point for you? Where will your future be without social security?

Unfortunately, jobs right now are few and far between- that makes ME more angry. How are you suppose to save for retirement when there are no jobs? The system is insolvent- too many people living longer and drawing out more than they ever put into the system. This imbalance needs to change. Yesterday I heard on a financial radio talk show, at the current rate, the SS system will be depleted in 23 years. Looks like I'll get some of my money out-

Of course it's annoying, BUT, Congress shot down Bush's plan in 2004-05 and AGAIN cheered at the 2006 SOTU speech for having shot it down in 2005....fast forward 5 years and look who's in the RED now?!?!
"On the social security front, 43 of the 44 Democratic Senators signed a letter Thursday to President Bush charging that his plan to privatize social security was "immoral, unacceptable, and unsustainable."
