wait a second, please ...

I have decided to jump on the Social Security train. My first stop is the information found at The Outlook For Social Security at the Congressional Budget Office website.

The Bush Administration is making such a big deal about the urgency of fixing Social Security that everybody needs to take a look at it in order to put in their two cents. After all, we can't have government doing our thinking and making our decisions for us, can we?

The CBO does state that outlays will surpass revenues in 2019 -- that's 15 years from now. They don't say that the trust fund will be unable to pay for the difference.
