    Now for the rest of the story:



    According to the 2020 annual report of the Social Security Board of Trustees, the surplus in the trust funds that disburse retirement, disability and other Social Security benefits will be depleted by 2035.

    America's top social program is facing a $16.8 trillion black hole



    Before answering, let's take a closer look at some of the figures and trends that are perpetuating the idea that America's top social program is doomed.
    Every year for the past eight decades, the Social Security Board of Trustees has released a report analyzing the short-term (10-year) and long-term (75-year) outlook for the program. Since 1985, the Trustees have cautioned that long-term revenue collection wouldn't support outlays. In plainer English, the program would be facing a funding obligation shortfall.

    In the 2020 report, the Board of Trustees projected that the program will completely exhaust its $2.9 trillion in asset reserves by 2035. These asset reserves are Social Security's net cash surpluses built up since inception. The program hasn't had an annual net cash outflow occur since 1982, but the Trustees are forecasting one in 2021 (and every year through 2035).
    What's more, the program is facing an estimated $16.8 trillion cash shortfall between 2035 and 2094. For context, that's up $2.9 trillion from the 2019 report and $5.7 trillion since 2015. The longer lawmakers wait to resolve Social Security's financial shortcomings, the costlier the fix is becoming.
    I'll bet if all the people who are afraid of social democracy refused to collect it social security would be fine for much longer.
    What do ya think?

    I think you're right because the problem with socialism is that sooner or later the socialists run out of other people's money and someone isn't gonna get paid whether voluntarily or via government's inability to pay due to lack of funds. But the liberal utopia sounds good on paper.


    BTW: A 2nd woman has accused Cuomo of sexual harassment? Do you have any thoughts on that? Or is this another that you're gonna sit out?

    Well, if he did it then he should face the consequences. It seems to be a partisan thing with you, but not with me. You think it's a big "gotcha" but it isn't.
    By the way, generally if you can get ALL the people to pay their taxes, not just the poor and middle class, social democracy works just fine.

    The top 1 percent of taxpayers paid roughly $616 billion, or 38.5 percent of all income taxes, while the bottom 90 percent paid about $479 billion, or 29.9 percent of all income taxes.


    If Cuomo did it? You don't believe the 2 women?

    Re: The Shining City Upon a Hill

    An anti-sexual-harassment group made up of former state legislative staffers called on Gov. Cuomo to resign Saturday in the wake of sexual harassment allegations against him.


    “ENOUGH. New York State has now lost the talents and ambition of yet another woman, whose safety and integrity were eliminated to serve a powerful man’s desires. Andrew Cuomo must resign now,” the Sexual Harassment Working Group said in a statement, after ex-Cuomo aide, Charlotte Bennett, accused the governor of behaving inappropriately toward her last year.


    Bennett, 25, told The New York Times that Cuomo, 63, complained to her about being “lonely” and not being able to hug anyone during the pandemic, before pressing her on who she last hugged.


    When she revealed her own history of sexual assault to Cuomo, Bennett claimed his reaction “was something out of a horror movie,” the paper reported.


    Cuomo allegedly kept repeating to Bennett, “‘You were raped and abused and attacked and assaulted and betrayed,’ over and over again while looking me directly in the eyes … It was like he was testing me,” she told a friend in a text message which was viewed by The Times.Earlier this week, the Sexual Harassment Working Group had called for in investigation of the governor after another former staffer, Lindsey Boylan, accused him of trying to kiss her on the mouth and suggesting a game of “strip poker.”






    “There must be an immediate independent investigation into Governor Cuomo’s workplace behavior, conducted by an entity over which Cuomo does not have any appointment or supervisory powers,” the group tweeted hours after Boylan came forward.
    In the Saturday statement, the group — which was formed by seven former Albany staffers who said they were harassed by ex-Assembly Members Vito Lopez and Micah Kellner, among others — offered words of encouragement to Bennett.
    “To Charlotte: we send you our strength, support, and shared rage for the abuse you endured,” the group wrote. “You have done an incredibly hard thing, becoming another important link in a powerful chain to creating a harassment free Albany. This is not something anyone asks for, but we are proud of you.”
