“Social Security is underfunded today because policymakers didn’t foresee just how rich today’s rich would be.”

 

Definetely a case of this is not a bug, it is a feature. So the economists (the Chicago Boys mostly) got us to buy into the neoliberal dream and when a ever increasing amount of economic gain began to accrue to incomes above the cap and investment income that is not subject, guess what?

 

Which created a whole new industry for Serious People to tell us that we must fix the impending crisis.
