An even CHEAPER Social Security fix

Take the $87 billion initially devoted to the war in Iraq. Invest it in stocks and bonds for an average 6% return over 65 years... you get: $3,840,612,533,192.53.

More than DOUBLE Social Security's supposedly projected shortfall.

The war in Iraq wasn't a national emergency. Potential Social Security shortfalls are a national emergency. If we could allocate $87 billion, with little debate, to the war in Iraq, than why not to Social Security?
