Social Security And Medicare Are
In Worse Shape Than You Think

Investor´s Business Daily, by Staff

Pensions: Even in normal years, the annual Social Security and Medicare trustees´ reports typically get overlooked. This year is far from normal. But the reports should be top of mind for anyone who cares about retirement security. The Social Security report finds that the "trust fund" will run out of money in just 17 years. The news only gets worse from there. The program´s unfunded liability over the next 75 years is now $12.5 trillion, which is up from $11.4 trillion last year and $4.7 trillion a decade ago. In other words, Social Security´s long-term unfunded liability has increased by 166% in

How about not giving money to people that have never paid into the system. How much money did the affordable care act take from medicare for startup money.

Yay! Just in time after having it removed involuntarily from my income since 1968 and I´m 60 days away from Medicare.

This outcome alone should have been tackled years ago by bringing to a screeching stop those immigrants (whether "refugees" using the new meaning of the word) who cannot work or speak English or have more than one wife, etc., and pay their way.

When W was president, he proposed self-directed individual retirement accounts as the fix. This would have effectively taken the whole program out of the gummint´s hands.

Still waiting for the fix. Or is it too little too late.

Don´t worry - RINOs in the Senate are keeping the extra 1.9% from our income over $250k for Medicare. Oh - they are using this money and 3.8% investment income tax to pay off Senators to vote for Trumpcare´s non-repeal of Obamacare.

Good job guys - you´ve got the House, the Senate and now the White House; next up is a Continuing Resolution to fund the $400 Billion a month Federal Government - vs Trump´s budget.

And you expect me to vote for yall big-time next November???

Trump needs to call out RINOs that he wants to defeat next year, so we can start culling the spineless ones - like McConnell & Ryan...

I started SS in 1968 when I took my first civilian job as an order picker in an industrial warehouse supply. I remember not knowing a thing about that deduction. But, I also remember way back then the political harping going on about how it had to be fixed! That is was not sustainable. That something had to be done. Well, here we are, 49 years later...same old problem. Politicians truly are worthless, aren´t they?

The number one goal for all politicians in D.C. is to keep their job. They will do anything -- or nothing in some cases -- to keep their job. It´s a very lucrative profession.

I´d be happy to call us even if they´ll just send me a check for the amount they stole from me at gunpoint over the years for SS and mediscam. I can get a much better return on that money than they ever have.

I really don´t like fascist/socialist/communist directives from my government telling me I have to buy this or I must pay that - too bad there are so many helpless morons that think it is just great.

My HUGE pet peeve with Social Security is that as the govt. takes your money from your paycheck they NEVER pay a penny in interest on it. Why is that?

THEN when you go to get it back they charge you taxes on it.

SCAM on top of SCAM!

When my grandfather was on SS, in the 60s, there were 15 workers paying into the system to fund his checks.
Now that I am on SS, there are two or three workers, last I heard, paying in for my check.

Simple math.

They are running out of other people´s money. Thank goodness I planned my retirement to where SS is helpful, but I can survive if it is cut off - this is because, from a teenager, I never trusted SS to be there for me. It was apparent at the time that it was an unstable Ponzi scheme, and nothing has improved in the 50 years since.

And for anyone still believing the "trust fund" story, it is a pile of IOUs, redeemable by increasing taxes or reducing spending at some future time to divert that revenue to pay back what was spent decades ago. Essentially a fraud, but a very legally laid out one. Does anyone believe that there will be more revenue or lower spending to pay these back? Me neither.

The government is lying. Its broke now. They rob Peter to pay Paul every quarter. Each of us can look at just the large number of cars with disabled tags for parking in our small towns. A good number of them are all on disability. I know two new Boeing retirees with fabulous pensions. Both are 51 and both say they get SS disability checks. How does that work?

How about ´aunt´ Zesumi or whatever the Obamination´s aunt was called and the forever drunk ´uncle´ stopping them from collecting? How about Mouchelle´s mother who suddenly gets $160,000 per year for what???
Let´s remove all the ´disabled´ who weigh several hundred pounds, are able to lift up a fork and pick up a check.....On and on.....let´s clean all that trash out and you will see SS and Medicare will suddenly be in much better shape!

Health Reform: We checked, and we couldn´t find Sen. John McCain telling voters who reelected him in 2016 that he´d repeal ObamaCare, but only if the Senate followed all the proper "procedures." But that´s his excuse now for killing what is likely the last chance to get rid of this law. After signaling that he could support the latest ObamaCare repeal-and-replace effort authored by Sens. Bill Cassidy and Lindsay Graham, McCain issued a statement saying that "health care reform legislation ought to be the product of regular order in the Senate." This is, he says, "the only way we might achieve bipartisan

Climate Change: Global warming is "settled science," we hear all the time. Those who reject that idea are "deniers." But as new evidence trickles out from peer-reviewed science studies, the legs beneath the climate change hypothesis — that the earth was doing just fine until carbon-dioxide spewing human beings came along — is increasingly wobbly. A new study published in the journal Nature Geoscience purports to support action by global governments to reduce carbon dioxide output in order to lower potential global warming over the next 100 years or so. But what it really does is undercut virtually every modern argument

Health Care: Apparently, decisions about how to reform the nation´s $3.2 trillion health care system must now win the approval of a late-night comedian who once hosted "The Man Show," which featured girls in bikinis bouncing on trampolines. Well, if health care reform has to face the "Jimmy Kimmel test" to be morally acceptable, why isn´t he denouncing ObamaCare? For those who don´t know, Kimmel became the reigning expert on health reform because his newborn son was born with a heart defect. All Kimmel had to do was give a tearful monologue that included a plea: "If your baby is going to die and it doesn't

Regulation: It´s no accident that Washington, D.C., has become known as the graveyard of promises. It´s exceedingly rare that a promise made in the nation´s capital is a promise kept. That´s why it´s great to report that President Trump has kept a big one — to cut two regulations for every new one passed. With a month to go in the fiscal year, the American Action Forum (AAF) decided to take a hard look at Trump´s regulation-cutting pledge. Along with cutting regulations, the plan envisioned having a net new cost of regulation of $0 or less. How did Trump do? "While there have been some hiccups,

Monetary Policy: The Fed, after eight years, has finally declared its war against the financial crisis of 2007-08 is over. Like so many other wars in this nation´s history, it should have been over long ago. Now, the "Great Unwinding" begins. On Wednesday the Fed officially began its long, and no doubt eventful, process of unwinding its massive balance sheet, built up in the aftermath of the Great Recession in one of the biggest, and most misbegotten, monetary experiments in economic history, dubbed Quantitative Easing. Beginning next month, the Fed said it will begin trimming the $4.5 trillion balance sheet simply by not reinvesting

In a free and open market, dominance yesterday guarantees nothing tomorrow. Toys R Us once seemed like an unstoppable force. The number of stores in the U.S. more than doubled from 1987 to 1995, when it accounted for 20% of all toy sales in the country.

Wiretapping: The U.S. government under President Obama wiretapped former Trump campaign Chair Paul Manafort in New York´s Trump Tower under "secret court orders before and after the election," CNN reported, citing "three sources familiar with the investigation." Assuming CNN´s report is true, it means President Trump, who was ridiculed earlier this year for claiming that his iconic building had been wiretapped, has been massively vindicated. But don´t hold your breath waiting for an apology. Just months ago, Trump was called a liar and worse for his tweets alleging that Obama had Trump Tower

Elections: Have you noticed that even the most ardent Trump haters haven´t been pining for a Hillary Clinton presidency? In case anyone had any doubts as to why, her post-loss antics have cleared it up. In a lengthy interview with National Public Radio — one of countless she´s given to promote her 512-page finger-pointing new book — the host asked Clinton if she would "completely rule out questioning the legitimacy of this election." Her answer: "No, I would not." She lamented that "I just don´t think we have a mechanism" to do so. But then she went on to spin a rather bizarre conspiracy theory that attracted little attention.

Millennials Need Trump´s Tax Cuts And Reforms

Millennials, through no fault of their own, have been hit the hardest over the last decade by the Great Recession, the outrageous price increases of higher education, and failing ObamaCare. Millennials have seen double-digit unemployment and a 700% increase in the cost of education since the 1990s. In today´s lopsided economy, college degree-worthy jobs have disappeared and minimum-wage and part-time employment have become the norm due to the disastrous Affordable Care Act. Millennials are left, on average, with $35,000 of student loan debt. And many are often out of work, or they´re working for the minimum

U.N.: President Trump will present a set of wide-ranging reforms for the United Nations this week that will actually force the dysfunctional organization to begin living up to its lofty ideals. This may be the corrupt, badly disorganized U.N.´s final chance at survival. Trump had harsh things to say about the U.N. during last year´s election. Sadly for the U.N., none of them was fake news or an exaggeration. The U.N. is corrupt. The U.N. is ineffective. The U.N. is wasting billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars.

Health Reform: After nine fruitless months, Republicans have finally come up with an ObamaCare replacement plan that is simple and appealing, and that should easily pass the Senate. Will the GOP blow it again? Put together by Sens. Bill Cassidy and Lindsay Graham, the plan would take the money being spent on ObamaCare´s insurance subsidies and Medicaid expansion, and give it to states in the form of fixed block grants. States would then have wide latitude in how they spend the money — for example, they could use it to set up high-risk pools, reduce out-of-pocket costs, pay providers or

President Donald Trump has called for fans to boycott the NFL if players don´t stop ´disrespecting´ the US by kneeling during the national anthem - as his rant continues to draw backlash from high profile athletes. Trump had earlier denounced the protests by NFL players and rescinded a White House invitation for NBA champion Stephen Curry in a two day rant that targeted top professional athletes and brought swift condemnation from league executives and star players alike on Saturday. Early Sunday morning, Trump continued his Twitter tirade and called for an NFL boycott. ´If NFL fans refuse to go to games until

(snip) It would be so satisfying if a group of patriotic fans to have at the ready a flash mob of singers at a stadium game.

His pre-dawn raid was meant to intimidate Manafort, not just to collect evidence. Robert Mueller’s sprawling special-counsel investigation is playing hardball. It was not enough to get a search warrant to ransack the Virginia home of Paul Manafort, even as the former Trump campaign chairman was cooperating with congressional investigators. Mueller’s bad-asses persuaded a judge to give them permission to pick the door lock. That way, they could break into the premises in the wee hours, while Manafort and his wife were in bed sleeping. They proceeded to secure the premises — of a man they are reportedly investigating for tax and financial crimes, not gang murders and Mafia hits — by drawing their guns on the stunned couple, apparently to check their pajamas for weapons.
