Most Americans have a rational attitude toward Social Security. It ain’t going to happen.
Voters remain concerned about Social Security and whether the system can deliver what the government has promised.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that only 39% of U.S. voters are even somewhat confident that the Social Security system will pay them all of their promised benefits. Fifty-eight percent (58%) lack such confidence.
Those figures include just 13% who are very confident that they will receive all promised benefits and 25% are not at all confident.
Uncle Sam is effectively bankrupt. When will Congress take notice and, more important, take action?
