    Gay men, like everyone, look forward to collecting social security as part of their retirement, It's good to know that the political propaganda put out by republicans is just that - propaganda - and the facts show that we are in reasonably good shape.

    Whether SS is in good shape or not, I wonder about how society is going to have to change as people live longer and don't retire as early. How are younger people going to advance in careers, if the older generation doesn't vacate the jobs? It probably won't be a great problem in my lifetime.

    Social Security has NEVER been a part of my retirement planning.

    I never plan to retire anyway.
