Unsustainable practices


I am tired of hearing politicians say that Medicare and Social Security are unsustainable.  And that people collecting Social Security today get much more than they paid into. But they don’t mention that the dollars everyone paid in years ago were worth more than the dollars of today because of inflation and our devalued currency. And Congress couldn’t leave the system as planned and looted the fund for other projects and made it taxable.
