Saving Social Security

I don't know if you've heard, but social security is in trouble. There are too many people drawing on social security, with that number only going up as the Baby Boomers reach retirement, and there aren't enough paying in.

Well, I read an article the other day in the latest Reader's Digest that quoted Ken Dychtwald of the NY Times as he suggested one way to fix social security: "Be part of a smaller generation. Then you need to give birth to a large generation, so when you are in your 70s and they are in their 40s and 50s, they'll be (generating) enormous amounts of taxes."

In other words, Jay and I are doing our part to fix the social security crisis. Heck, most of the families in our church are doing their part.

So next time someone says something derogatory to me about the size of my family, I'll just say, "You are welcome!"
