And that means, gulp, payroll might have to be raised, or benefits modified or some combination, four years sooner than people thought back in 1990!

What a surprise - when it turns out that a social program costs more and delivers less than what was projected, the answer is... take more and give back less!

The SS take is already over 12% of income. That is an insane amount, but by all means, let's make it more insane, because that'll make it better, at least until you want to raise the tax some more.
