Think about the 'why' for a moment.

Pay in more and get back less. Could it have something to do with the growth of the group collecting, and the demands for COLAs?

Could it have something to do with the growth of the group not paying in, therefore those paying, need to pay in more, to support the group collecting?

Ponzi scheme?

So, is that President Trump's fault? Or one of many many problems he "inherited?"

One of his campaign promises, yes. But aside from only 5 weeks in office, where he is being obstructed from forming a government, he was obstructed by the local authorities in Flint;

It seems to be the plan of the left to obstruct President Trump from getting anything done. All at the expense of the People. Typical of a party that has recently been putting it's own existence ahead of the People

yeah think about the reality, O.K.?
WE weren't "solvent" under Clinton. Not exactly. Deficit spending meant borrowing ( yeah stealing) from the SS funding. Then, under Bush43 we added Medicare, a cost that has never been under the proposed cost and despite "stealing 4.5% of every worker's pay, never properly funded.

Social Security programs have been robbed by our own Congress for most of it's life. Can you remember Al Gore's farcical "LOCK BOX?"

After decades of borrowing the cash and leaving a worthless IOU note, WE THE PEOPLE find out the account is empty and the Congress cannot pay it back. The Democrats and Republicans, professional politicians all, are both guilty.

That is why we needed a rouge outsider to go in and get the needed work done. And that is why Trump won.
