It isn't semantics. If they do nothing it will run out. The chance of doing nothing is less than 0%.

Nobody saying it will run out thinks nothing will be done.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Is it arrogance or lack of self awareness that makes you think that anyone who disagrees with your opinion is a gum flapping Kool-aid drinker?
There many that disagree with me and they are not gum flapping kool-aid drinkers. Many times they are the ones that are right and I am wrong. When I feel I am in the right I am willing to put my money where my mouth is. Now you can call that arrogance or lack of self awareness but I would call it confidence.

My point is we hear all the time it will run out. That hasn't happened and will not happen.
Now if your point is if they do nothing it will run out then we are in agreement.

I think there is a distinct possibility that there will never be enough consensus for any solution to pass until it actually runs out and misses a couple of months of payments. Eventually a fix will happen.

In a similar way to the elimination of the estate tax in 2010. No one believed it would happen.

I disagree without calling you a "gum flapping Kool-aid drinker".   :)

Are you aware that the payroll tax intake recently flipped to become less than the outflows at this point?

Do you realize that social security is now starting to draw down its slush fund, which is the beginning of the end?

Have you visited the SSA website and tried out the "fixes"? Do you even know what the possible fixes are?

Apply your argument to climate change and see how ridiculous it is. "The planet has never been destroyed by CO2 emissions so it never will"

They won't miss payments, it just triggers benefit cuts so the payout isn't more than the inflows.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Its great that you have confidence in the fixes. Myself, I believe that they will keep fixing it for the current generation, but then leave an unrepairable system. For anyone under 52, SSA is something they will pay more and more for in order to receive far less than promised, just so that the current and near term retirees can have what they were promised.

I have confidence they will keep coming up with new fixes to mask their failed fixes.
I think where we disagree is I don't see an end to kicking the can down the road and you do?

Is the road endless? Is there no brick wall or cliff at the end of the road?

After I seen all the giveaways for Covid I would say it is an endless road.

Why isnít SS $ poured into the market or other investments?
