Americans shocked to learn that there isn’t actually a Social Security crisis – Salon.com

The 1% want you to think there is a crisis with Social Security, so their paid legislators can “reform” it–funneling the money into the stock market, where it will magically disappear overnight (Then, there will be a crisis).

The deficit fear-mongering succeeded in getting 57 percent of survey respondents to believe that Social Security is a “crisis or significant problem,” until they learned that minor tax increases would make it totally sustainable for 75 years, at which point 74 percent of Americans were like “Oh, really? Then it seems fine, why don’t they ever put it like that on the news.” (That is not an exact quote from the survey.)

This news will presumably enrage and baffle Joe Scarborough, because everyone he knows knows that we must Do Something About Entitlements.
