Nobody is taking away your precious blood money Boomers, but for the love of God let us phase out this monstrosity for MY generation! Really, we'll take the hit so our kids and their kids aren't rendered economic slaves to us!


A second half boomer like myself, age 55, is going to get the shaft when it comes to SS. The older boomers like tele are getting their SS and the system will go broke before the younger folks have put that much into it. People like me who have been paying in for almost 40 years will be the losers. I look at my paycheck withholdings for SS and Medicare as simply an additional Federal income tax and have made the necessary plans to fund my own retirement.
