Missed Fortune – The Government’s Day of Reckoning

Posted on | December 27, 2009

The Day of Reckoning

The verdict is in: Our government is headed toward disaster.

Social Security — the biggest ponzi scheme on the planet, is already technically bankrupt.

The current Social Security debt stands at $60 trillion. Due to inflation, its current unfunded liability is $100 trillion.

One crippling force catching up to us is age demographics. When Social Security was introduced there was one recipient for every 60 workers. Within a decade of instituting the ill-fated program the ratio was one recipient to 15 workers. By 1986 the ratio was one recipient per every 6 workers.

The current ratio is one Social Security benefit recipient per every 3-4 workers.

For the first time in history, in the first week of October of this year Social Security paid out more in benefits than it received in taxes. This wasn’t predicted to happen until 2042.

If those statistics aren’t enough to jolt you, consider this: Medicare has six times the amount of unfunded obligations than Social Security.

Our national debt stands at $11.7 trillion, which would require $38,000 per citizen to pay off. National health care alone will add another $2 trillion.

The Congressional Budget Office estimates that by mid-century a middle income family will have to pay over 2/3rds of its income in taxes.

And let’s not forget about inflation.

Meanwhile, Congress is preoccupied rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.

Why doesn’t the government have to live basic economic principles like the rest of us?

The answer is simple: Because it has the power to print money and take it forcefully from wage earners.

This recklessness, foolishness and oppression is unsustainable. At some point there will be a day of reckoning.

The question is, what are you doing about it?

Your Personal Economic Stimulus Plan

While you can’t control what the government does, you can control your own finances. You need a personal economic stimulus plan to help you outpace inflation and minimize taxation.

And the Missed Fortune strategies provide both of these through specific asset optimization strategies, as well as properly structured maximum-funded, tax advantaged insurance contracts.

Get started now with your economic stimulus plan.
