How will the US Government pay back the $2.26 trillion owed to the social security trust fund?
The question has been asked many times and the answer is the same, '' we can always raise taxes ''.The US Government better do it before the rich leave the country for places where they can keep their money.
Great question, and the answer is complicated because so many of the people who have the power to actually resolve this problem in Washington, have promised not to raise taxes. I believe people who have sacrificed to place themselves in a position to earn more money deserve respect, but they also must help the country that provided the opportunities for their success.
So I guess the real answer lies in convincing those RICH Americans to voluntarily contribute to their country. I think if they were each asked to contribute, say by a letter from the government, a majority of them would do so.
They can't.Nor do they have any imtention of paying it back!!!
