Why Social Security is doomed


Look at this map (second item down the page) entitled "Projected Growth of Senior (Age 65+) Population by State 2000-2030)."

Note that the range of expected growth starts at less than 100%, with that lowest rate encompassing less than half of the states. So in the next 22 years, most states will have at LEAST twice as many seniors as they did at the turn of the millenium. As a wise man once said, a good way to prepare for retirement would be to have lots of kids then tell them to get the spare room ready 'cause you're movin' in.
