I've had in mind a futuristic who done novel where retiring baby boomers are being mysteriously murdered or having fatal accidents. Some detective starts connecting the dots and discovers a government conspiracy to make SS solvent. The final twist and turn is the discovery of a plan to continue the murders once SS is solvent in order to use the funds for other nefarious activities. Too bad I'm not a good writer. The movie rights would guarantee a successful ER.

"I've had in mind a futuristic who done novel where retiring baby boomers are being mysteriously murdered or having fatal accidents. "

More like you have a car accident, and 99% of them are fatal to seniors on SS........you just never make it to the hospital alive, or die from your 'injuries'.

Have a heart attack? same problem......you get to the hospital 'DOA' or die shortly thereafter.....

Get your meds refilled? Likely one of the capsules gives you instant fatal heart attack.....untraceable.....

Yeah...it could happen....

More likely, they'll just run out of money, then the weenies and queenies will riot....kill off 15% of the inner cities.....then they'll go rampaging....

Seniors with no more SS will simply starve to death or freeze to death or die from their ailments since they won't get their meds.

the feds will be 'helpless' to stop it until 30% have died...then they'll step in and 'radically transform America'....Obama's goal.

Pretty amusing, intercst!

I would suppose we are creating similar perverse incentives with many other government programs.

However, things like celulosic alcohol and wind power are probably employing a lot of lawyers, accountants and MBAs to not only identify the perverse incentives, but to construct entities capable of extracting the maximum cash and benefits from them, perverse or not.

Sounds like Coma, but in that novel (and later movies) the bad guys put surgical patients into comas to send them to a facility where their organs could be harvested and traded illegally. Evil capitalists, not evil govt.

Lucky guy. He has two different women willing to marry him. If I had that, who'd need social security?

I've clearly hung out with this crowd too long.

We had a local incident where a woman died and her relatives didn't report it for five years. I forget exactly how her desiccated body body was discovered, sitting in the living room.

My second* thought was, "Are they still collecting her Social Security?"

*first thought was, of course, "Ewww!'

Ah, yes, the Bates family, ran a quiet little motel outside of town.
