I saw a study that said if they make NO changes to SSI, that in 2035 or when ever its "trust fund" runs out it will need to cut benefits by 25%. That's it. If they make no changes there will still be enough money coming in annually to pay 75% of what they're paying now, adjusted for inflation. I say let it ride and make the cuts then...The minor problem is .Gov owes SSI about 2 trillion, the "TRUST fund", and will have to borrow this to pay the SSI fund back. But that is a .Gov problem, not an SSI problem.
