Will Social Security Make it to 100?

Today, I saw a Member of Congress share this photo congratulating Social Security on is 77th birthday and noting how many of this member’s constituents would be living in poverty without it.

Strangely, no mention of the coming entitlement tidal wave and Social Security’s insolvency.

The law was enacted in 1935. Will “Social Security as we know it” make it past 100? No, because when does the trust fund run out? 2035.

I took the photo this member shared and merged in the trust fund chart, just to illustrate the coming crisis. Instead of pay this entitlement lip service, our elected officials and political candidates should get serious about reforming entitlements to make sure they don’t go bankrupt.
