Social Insecurity: A time-bomb of mass destruction?

Amidst the “sexier” issues of war then (1968) and now, is this time bomb of mass destruction to be ignored? The massive overpromised Social Security system threatens to implode and explode as time passes. The Democrats don’t want to address it, but will the Republicans? A convention, and all its platform resolutions on policy, are days away. Does it matter that we are enduring a financial albatross that can cripple our economy, and the hopes of the aging, in the ensuing years? Do we care? Should we? And if so, how?
