    All of the candidates, like much of the population, have bought into the lie of congress that SS is a bad system and going broke. The problem is not with SS, it is with bad congress. If congress would keep their greedy hands off of the money that is suppose to be used for SS instead of spending it for pet projects the SS system would have so much money in it they could almost double the benefits.


    So what needs to be done is two things.One return SS to it original purpose. Stop paying benefits to children and disabled from that system. If they want to pay out funds for those things them start another system outside of SS. Second make it impossible for congress to touch SS so they can't spend the money for anything other then what it is intended. These two things will make SS last as long as the US remains a nation.
