Believing official reassurances based on Fantasyland projections of ever-rising payroll taxes and employment does not magically make the Social Security system viable.
by Charles H. Smith, Of Two Minds:
Questioning the financial viability of the Social Security system is often taken as an attack on the program itself. Nothing could be further from reality. Anyone who truly wants Social Security to continue as is should take an active interest in structural trends rather than focusing all their energy on attacking those who question the official reassurances that the the system is sound until 2033.
The two primary trends are obvious:
1. A structural decline in full-time employment
2. A historically unprecedented increase in Social Security benefits paid
