Response to Omaha Steve (Original post)

14. Even IF this is true the larger older generation population will not last forever. We need to make

it through this by raising the cap on income paying into ss and mc to keep it functioning until the boomer generation gets what they need. Then we need to refigure it for the younger generation. Whatever it takes to keep it going as the program does work and will be needed as long as there are elderly people.

The arguement is "How do we continue from here - higher caps or privatization?" I do not think that the rethug idea of privatization will work. Higher caps could be lowered later on if the young want to but they should help us through this larger population hump.
