Every news article I read, and I'm not talking
>about the editorial columns, states it as a fact that the
>social security trust fund will be bust in 20 years, or
>some such number.. Baloney.

Actually, not every article. Businessweek came out laast week with both an article and an editorial (which was reprinted in the NYT) stateing basically everything we have thrashed out here before - there is no crisis, the assumptions are pessimistic, etc. It even had a line in there that really shocked me: "For SS to be secure, it must be social." Anyone know when BW started becoming a haven for socialist thought?
