Even now, SSI is *insurance*, and our policies could be cancelled at any time. I wouldn't rely on it.

I think there are too many lobbying organizations around to stop any messing with SSI in the near future. But I'm using $0 as my projected social security benefit for down the road.

I look at SS as just another tax instituted by the government, as governments often have done through the ages, they promise that great things will be accomplished as a result of the tax, but usually deliver less than promised. Much less annoying than them taking my rights away.
