wvr SS- bankrupt,

It's not. In the worst case scenario (no sensible changes, no tax increases, etc.) after 20-30 years, SS will be able to pay out 75% of projected revenues.

Of course, we should make those sensible changes like raising the retirement age.

It is hard to have a discussion with people who believe the federal government can do no good. Fortunately I don't need to because only a small minority of voters believe this.
