maracle: "My guess as to what will happen with social security...we've got like 20 years or something before the surplus ends."

Unless i have missed a recent report, you are off by about a decade.

While the date has fluctuated somewhat, it is usually circa 2015-2018 that the surplus ceases accruing and then another 20-25 years until the special purpose bonds are expected to fully redeemed.
