So if you keep the Social Security benefit that you are getting now until you die
or SS benefits that have been assigned for you (50 year olds) to get in the next 15 years when you reach retirement, until you die, along with COLA, as they may be figured now and in the future . . . . .
Then if you are assured of receiving these benefits, what difference does it make to you if the generations behind (those less than 50 years old) make other choices for the system based on what they would like to see happen.
Seems to me, as long as those 50 and over are grandfather into the current traditional SS system, then those less than 50 should be the ones to determine what they would like to see happen to the program.
