Hi xactly,

>>6. The key to really fixing the SS system is not even addressed in this series of articles: how to keep
the government from raiding ths SS funds to cover up their bloated budgets and deficit spending.
Let's face it, even if people want to "do the right thing" and agree to pay up more money to
preserve SS, no one wants to pay more money into the current SS system than they do now
because no one believes the government can be trusted around a bigger pile of money. If people
pony up more to save SS, the fund should not be in government hands.

7. Oh yes, one more point: government employees, particularly retired Senators, Representatives
and Presidents should all have their reitrements indexed to the fate of SS. If SSbenefits are slashd
for future retirees or if SS gets limited for wealthy retirees, wealthy government folks should have
their pensions slashed as well, esp. as they were responsible for the fund raids and fiscal
imprudence that allowed SS to get into this mess in the first place! >> I like the way you think!!....herd
