Politicians will attempt to make good on the IOUs as they wish to be re-elected. But there ain't no guarantee in my way of thinking. tj is eligible for early benefits in 2013. I will be watching the pols closely. And will take the benefit once they decide to grapple with the program deficit to be assured of locking in the benefit under the current rules.

There were scare stories like this 20 years ago. My mom used to say, "No Social Security for you!"

Well guess what? I get it. (Sorry Mom.)

I do agree that it should have been required to be actuarilly correct from the beginning, and invested back into the economy. Well, taxes will just have to be raised. (Sorry wings.)
