</lurk>In the grandest conspiracy theory of them all:Did Bush increase the government spending whilecutting taxes to create such a deficit that SSScould not succeed?Republicans have been opposed to SSS since FDR,but it is popular with the voters.Reagan, Bush the first and Bush the second haverun very large deficits (very unconservativebehavior). The debt load makes SSS deficiet payments in21 st century untneable.In Europe, current government debt is not large compared to US. Unfunded retirement obligationsare large (compared to US). Per capita obligationare as high or higher.In order to make SSS a true failure, the totalUS gov. debt load must be larger.ol Roger<lurk>
