    Thanks for taking the time to post all of this information. With all this information out there we know all the congress people know of this and no one cares. We should let them know at election time. I just wonder how the government is going to replace the lost revenue in taxes from the cuts and the loss of spending by the retirees. Maybe they just do not care.

    Voting them out will prove fruitless and futile. What we need is looting, burning, and rioting. We all know how that gets attention.
