Chicken Little raises Social Security alarm

Chicken Little

Social Security is failing, Chicken Little said last week.

The diminutive chicken, loved by many but none too bright, traveled to several states to raise the alarm.

"Social Security is headed toward bankruptcy!" Little cried. "We have to save it! Start dismantling it!"

Pressed for details, Little admitted that his plan would do nothing to help Social Security. Further, it would cost an additional $2 trillion and weaken our guaranteed, lifetime safety net.

"But," Little said. "Foxy Loxy has assured me that he can handle our money better than our government. Let's give him all our cash."

Mother Goose dismissed Little's alarm.

"In 2052, Social Security will have spent its trust fund," Goose said. "Its income will cover 80 percent of its expenses, under current rules. Some changes will be required, but they need not be drastic or foolish."

"As a retiree," Goose continued, "I'd prefer that my monthly checks not be managed by those who live in the land of make-believe."
