You're kidding right?

From President Bush's State of the Union Address

For example, in the year 2027, the government will somehow have to come up with an extra 200 billion dollars to keep the system afloat

This is humorous for 2 reasons...

1.) If we are forced into privatization, the governmenet will somehow have to come up with an extra" two trillion dollars by 2015 to afford the transition.

2.) Ironically, in the past 2 years, we have found 200 billion (plus now) dollars to pay for a failing occupation based on a series of lies in Iraq.

There is NO Crisis continues with the coverage.

Somehow? Aren't those US Treasury Bonds held in the Social Security trust fund backed by the Full Faith and Credit of the US Government? Somehow I don't see the Chinese worrying about having their bonds paid. I guess Bush would rather pay the red Chinese than pay our seniors...
