"Our social security system is (as it is currently set up) a Ponze scheme. Just as stated, the money that is currently being taken in is being paid to current retirees." From the very startt you choose an ideologically-driven distortion of reality over the truth. It is just as correct to say that current retirees are being paid out if the vast surpluses of the past (some $2T of surplus) that was invested in U.S. treasury debt.
