CBO estimates that in fiscal year 2012, spending for Social Security totaled $773 billion, equal to about 5 percent of gross domestic product and one-fifth of federal spending. As more members of the baby-boom generation retire and the U.S. population grows older in the coming decades, Social Security outlays are projected to grow more rapidly than the economy and more rapidly than the program’s dedicated tax revenues.

Over the next 10 years, outlays will exceed dedicated tax revenues by about 10 percent, on average. That gap will grow larger in the 2020s, and by 2030, Social Security outlays will be about 6 percent of gross domestic product and will exceed dedicated tax revenues by about 20 percent. As a result, under current law, resources available to the Social Security program will become insufficient to pay full benefits in about 20 years, CBO projects



How do we reform Social Security so that it becomes sustainable?


lurkers/regulars from other forums that see this/whoever....i kinda want these things to attract people that generally don't post. don't be afraid to share your thoughts.

I think an easy initial step would to remove the cap on the payroll tax.

Well yeah, I certainly agree with that.

Oh, great another discussion topic that I know nothing about!

Fuck you guys.

I'm only kidding

Haha, let me know in the General Thread what you'd like to be discussed. That's where this one came from.
