    But isn't that printed money basically useless? What backs it? It used to be gold - not anymore.

    No matter what they lullaby us with about the economy, all you have to do is look around and see the tattered remains of the once-proud workforce. Prices keep going up (with a few temporary, manipulated exceptions such as gasoline) and the 9-to-5ers aren't seeing any spectacular raises. SS recipients don't see a COL increase.

    Yet the Monopoly money that they print pours into the system ...

    Speaking of the "tattered remains of the workforce" ( a well-put statement, @Sifu Phil Bonifonte ); I was just reading this morning that if Bernie Sanders gets elected, he plans on eliminating the need for truck drivers. He says no more trucks on the roads !
    This is certainly not going to sit well with all of the truck drivers in America, nore their families.
    Besides, how dies he think it will even work to send everything by train, they would still need a ways to get through the city and to all of the stores.
    Amazon may be perfecting the drone idea; but they don't carry that much weight in their deliveries.

    I bet that decision was made after they "borrowed" all our interest! When they realized how much it was they were going to have to pay back...they also decided they better find a way around that. And since they haven't paid anything back...I guess they did!

    Nominally, there is a fund. But since dip into it without repaying what they've taken, with the interest that would have accumulated had it been left in the fund, there is no fund in reality.

    There are two different kinds of disability. SSI is for those who haven't paid into the system but are disabled, or have paid in, but not enough to qualify for SSDI. The second type is SSDI, which is for those who have worked and paid into the system. SSI includes, but is not limited to, children who are in school, but have diagnoses that qualify them for disability. I've posted about this in another thread, the one about medicating/over medicating children. The parents of those receiving SSI receive the check, and they receive a check for each child who qualifies. This seems to be a replacement for the old time welfare, and can really add up for someone with a few or more children on SSI. If you look at the number of children qualifying, and then add in the addicts who are now considered disabled, the rolls have really swollen over the years.
