Social Security Reform Thursday: Part 76 -- Social Security Crisis Nearer Than Common Wisdom Holds.
Thursdays are good days for reform, because they fall between Wednesdays and Fridays.
That's why WILLisms.com offers a chart or graph, every Thursday or so, pertinent to Social Security reform.
This week's topic:
The Downward Roller Coaster Begins Today.
In just a few short years, Social Security will begin paying out more than it takes in (.pdf):
In theory, Social Security is supposed to continue paying benefits after 2017 by drawing on the Social Security Trust Fund.
There's a Social Security shortfall, and it's not 20 or 30 or 30 years away. It's knocking on our door.
Tune into WILLisms.com each Thursday or so for more important graphical data supporting Social Security reform.

With the way Obama and the rest of the Socialist's are spending and planning ways of making this country into a Socialist Society, we all are going to be on one form or another of "Soc Sec" sooner than we know. IF we don't get a rein in on the Bail Outs and the rest of Obama and the Dems spending soon, we are headed down hill all the way on the slipperiest slope we ever imagined. Soc Sec is a ponzi scheme that our Govt forces us to pay into. WHY? Because we are all too stupid and helpless to take care of our selves. OR so they think!

I recently convinced my son, who is now 24 going on maturity to start putting away as much money as his portions of his SS payments. i used some of your posting to make him realize that the federal government possesses no more wealth that it seizes from people.
I also showed him my Excel spreadsheet that I generated. I took one half of my portion of SS for every year I had worked and showed him that compounding this increasing amount of money on a YEARLY basis would yield more than what SS could ever think about paying. I used a conservative five percent interest rate for my first forty years and a three percent rate for the last six years.

EB, That is so great that you convinced your son to do that! I just HOPE we will have a CHANGE of POTUS in 2012! Obama is starting to make Jimmy Carter look good. AND Obama has only been in office less than 3 weeks!. Yikes!
