I doubt that.


You doubt what, that I would not mind if no one profited? I thought I had made myself quite clear that I don't like the idea of people losing money via SS. Not once did I complain about a subpar rate of return.

In other words, my complaint is not about getting 2% when I could be getting 6%. It is about those who get -4% (or far less) vs getting at least 0%. If everyone and their families received at least breakeven and no one got anything different, that would be an improvement IMO. I realize that such would result in less income for many but at least this way, no family risks losing any wealth to SS.
