It’s been this way for decades though. SS is a farce anyway. While well intend it was misused immediately and was always unsustainable

Its is sustainable if you do two things get rid of the recipient (covid vax) and have more pay in that will never get it illegal migrants. See problems solved ut can self fund if no one but government takes money from.it and everyone has to pay into, no one like tax so we call it benefits like healthcare and pension programs. Sound nice but are worse than what was previously there.

Since back in 2001, I have always been under the assumption that SS would not be there for me when I qualified.
Also, due to our falling birth rates (IIRC since 2010), there is simply not enough of those working to support retirees. People began putting off having kids till later in life or not at all. And having fewer of them too. Tack on the “Do it for the Earth! Dont have kids!” climate change ideology too.
What is the solution?
Raise SS taxes, not better.
Raise the qualification age, not better.
Cut benefits, not better.
All three, still, not better.

Problem easily solved . Legalize weed nation wide . The states that have FULLY legalized it , are making a ton of money . No need to steal from it .

I see articles claiming that SS benefits will be contingent on being up to date with your clot shot jabs. Any informed opinions on this? I’ve just qualified for SS, are they planning to take that away at Biden‘s whim?

They’ve wanted to do it but can’t figure out how. That pesky constitution law always getting in the way of king b.
As we see though it don’t mean they won’t try even when they know it’s illegal. Look at how many other things he’s tried that have been reversed by the courts in immigration, obstruction of state laws, etc.
He himself has stated he’s tried numerous things like outright banning of assault rifles but can’t. He knew it was illegal but tried anyway.
Will they try it? Probably eventually
The reason IMO they haven’t already is this is the least resistant crowd. They are not only vaccinated they are the ones getting the boosters.
They know they are running out of time because numbers are dramatically dropping worldwide and the money scheme will end. New pills are coming out and all the people (he thinks are too stupid to understand anything) figured out alternative medicine that worked.
A lot hinges on this coming ruling.
