Ah, one young grasshopper in the "18-34" demographic is prepared to raise some serious caine (while Aaron is shaking his cane) if the Social Security she spent her entire life paying into suddenly goes "poof"...

Wait, did someone say Michael Caine?

Ah, but I married a Baby Boomer. I should be rolling in all the entitlements his demographic block will be demanding. ;)

Most folks in the 18-34 demographic wouldnt be shocked but they wouldnt be happy about it either.

Oh, true. It's not the kind of thing to which one can admit in Washington...but I don't think anyone in the 18-34 demographic would be at all shocked if someone did.

That might be deemed the "popular wisdom". But woe to the President or Congress which tries to translate it into reality.

which would mean instructing the workers who are presently paying for the program that it will ultimately be means-tested and that they might not receive any benefits

I was under the impression that at least among Gen Xers and younger, it was assumed that we are never going to see a dime of Social Security.
