    First, I'd point out that the US government is anything but incompetent. In fact, it does quite well what governments do best: strip the productive of their wealth and pass it around to the parasitical class. Social safety net programs don't really have to help anyone; in fact, the more problematic they are, the more money politicians get to spend and they are quite competent at spending other peoples' money. It's our mistake for believing that an organization structured on politics and bureaucracy is going to run a social safety net program in a way that we feel is beneficial and "competent."

    Anyway, they use terms like "social security" to fool the boobus. The "trust fund" is not a trust fund at all. And, "we owe it to ourselves" denies who is really going to pay for the profligacy of current generations.

    bureaucracy's are inherently incompetent, the government is run by bureaucrats not policymakers, policy is enforced by bureaucrats and written by those who often need not fear any consequence.
