Ellen of course is right. The problem is that Wall Street sees the SS trust funds as a nice source of additional investment capital so they have been campaigning hard for privatizing SS. They have been actively attempting to undermine public support for SS by stirring up generational conflict. Unfortunately, I think they have a good chance of succeeding since the corporate owned media has been giving free reign to their propaganda.
