What do the rest of you think will happen to social security?

Unless Bush is able to accomplish what no one before him has been able to do, SS will bump along until it falls off a financial cliff. Congress isn't likely to do anything other than tinker around a little. The folks in Washington simply don't have the guts to do what it takes to fix SS. For people currently receiving it, or folks on the verge, I doubt anyone will touch their benefits. For younger folks, there's no way to know what the future holds for them. If I were a young pup, I certainly would favor private accounts.
